Problem uploading & downloading pics

by Ironman63 / January 30, 2013 2:19 PM PST

I have had my computer for about a month(running Win8 & IE10) and have a problem that has happened in the last couple of days. When I try to save a pic or try to upload a pic in IE, I have to choose my folder starting from the Documents Library main page. It wasn't doing this. Before, whatever folder I was saving in or uploading from is where the browse window would start. What have I done to change this? This is very aggravating. Thanks for any help.

Default Folder

Go to "Tools", then "View Downloads". Click on "Options" then choose your default folder. It works for downloads, not sure about uploads.

Not that folder

If I download a zip file or an application, it goes into the downloads. That hasn't changed. But if I right-click and choose "Save picture as", then I have to start from the main library folder, then click "Pictures", then my next folder and etc.. It was bringing up the last folder that I saved a picture in(ie, Muscle Cars).
It is the same if I try to upload to, say, ebay. Bring up the ebay picture uploader, then click "Browse", I have to start from the main library folder to choose the pics for every auction I list, so if I list 10 items, I have to start from scratch every time instead of being able to just go up a folder from the last folder.
Does this explain it better?
