I have a network of windows 7 laptops and an XP PC as server and (thanks to advice from "howtogeek") the file sharing works . However, I would like to identify the 6 different folders in the data partition of the XP (the typical path is: "\\server\data(d)\server letters & papers" or "\\server\data(d)\pictures")as the normal locations for the "save as" and "open" actions of all applications running on the Windows 7 machines. Please can you advise me how to do that?
