Change Default Save Location On Surface RT

Monday, December 15th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Windows 8

Bert asks:

You showed how to save documents to OneDrive by default in WIN 8.1. How do you save to Surface RT Tablet by default?

 When you save a document on a Microsoft Surface tablet, the default save location in the OneDive cloud. This is due in part to the smaller hard drive size on these tablets and also because OneDrive cloud integration is a selling point for these devices.


You can always switch to the device with just a tap on the folder you prefer to use.


But you can easily change your default settings.  Go to PC Settings.


 Then select OneDrive.


Choose File storage.


 You’ll then see the option to use OneDrive as your default saving location for files. Turn it off by moving the slider bar.


 Files will now save to your tablet by default.
