    Post Tips by davi 01: Change Your default picture folder

    Get sick of whenever you save an image you have to always change the drive and folder. This tip will allow you to change where you want your default image folder to be.

    1_ Go to your startup menu and open the run command.
    2_ Type in regedit

    3_ Follow these folders:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    \Software
    \\Microsoft
    \\\Windows
    \\\\\CurrentVersion
    \\\\\\Explorer
    \\\\\\\\User Shell Folders

    Make sure you open USER SHELL FOLDERS and NOT just SHELL FOLDERS.

    4_Delete the Key for "My Pictures"
    5_Create a new expanded string value called "My Pictures"

    6_Right click the string and click modify.
    7_Change the value to "cImages"
    (assuming "cImages" is the path to the folder that contains your images)

    8_Restart
    9_Come back to this post.
    10_Thank me.

    Yes this will hopefully be a series on how to alter Peronsal Computers in ways that will help artists get a better performance out of their systems.

    Pencil Soldier, Windows will return to the last folder you saved to ONLY IF you are saving from the same IE. If you close that IE and start saving again you will go back to your default.
