Opening and Saving of files in Microsoft Office 2003 can be much faster. If you would like to add custome places in the left hand column of the open or save as dialog boxes just create a text file and add the following text inside it:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
And save this file with a .reg extension so that it adds to the registry. The above example will create a place called “root” and will open up the C: drive to save in or open from. You can of course change it to whatever folder is your default that you would like to use.
If you are using Microsoft Office XP instead of Microsoft Office 2003 then simply change the 11.0 in the script to 10.0 and you will be fine
