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