After closing remember where you were... RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • It is frustrating when I close WLW and open it again and it doesn't remember what directory I was in the last time I added a photo. I always add from the same directory but WLW seems to default to the photos directory in the My Documents folder. I would like it to remember that I steered it towards the My Documents/BG/images folder instead. Sort of like just about any windows program I can remember. When I save a photo Explorer remembers where I last chose to save it and opens that directory up as the default for all successive save attempts. WLW does not.

  • Just to be clear--we do remember the path until you exit the Writer process. Hopefully that is the behavior you're seeing?

    What you can do as a workaround is to put a shortcut to My Documents/BG/images in your My Pictures folder, so at least it's only a double-click away instead of having to navigate around.

  • Thanks for the tip, Joe, and yes, Brandon, it is remember until exit. Would be nice if it saved that info for the next time it is opened though.
