    Setting default library for attachments


    I use snip a lot to use as post attachments and they are saved by default to Pictures.

    When I am attaching any pics to posts when I go to Manage attachments it always defaults to Desktop. Is there a way to change this to default to Pictures please??

    Hey John,

    From what I noticed, it usually opens to the same location that it was last closed for the same dialog wherever it was last used.

    When it opens, browse to and open where you want it to open next, then close the dialog using the red X box at top right corner. Open the dialog again to see if it opens to where you wanted it now.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Shawn I'll try that as I usually close the document - I have tinkering tips and site links in docs that saves me typing heaps out - and think no more of it. It only happens on this machine which is running 8 in Stardock7 maybe that's why??
