Office Demo Watch the demoDemo icon

Do you find yourself searching through folder after folder to find a particular file or to save the file you’re working on? You might have hundreds of folders and subfolders on your computer, and this can make it tricky to remember exactly where the item you want is located. Even if you know exactly where a folder is, it can be frustrating to burrow down through the same levels of folders over and over to get to the file you need.

But when you’re working in the Microsoft Office System, you can eliminate that frustration—and most of those clicks. Office makes it possible for you to conveniently save shortcuts to frequently used folders on the My Places bar in the Open dialog box and in the Save and Save As dialog boxes that you get to from the File menu. Adding folder shortcuts to the My Places bar means that you can access or save files in just a couple of clicks, which makes a world of difference when you’re in a rush. Watch this demo to learn how to use the My Places bar and make using Office programs even easier.
