I'm almost sure that someone (not me) will know how to use Terminal to write a command line to make documents go, by default, to Desktop, a move which I prefer actually - accessibility being my principal rationale - and then I sort them later.

Remember toMacsh that MS Word came from Microsoft, and that company initially developed Word for Windows only, Mac was an afterthought, following intensive negotiation. Regular Windows users (of which I am no longer one, thankfully) will realise that the Mac world inherited the default location for documents, programmed into Word (Office), namely ... the Documents folder. MS saw no reason to change that for OS 9 - or X.

Command (Apple icon key) D automatically saves the save location to the desktop.

Good one Harry, absolutely right, but, for some reason, it doesn't always work. I've no idea why not, but it could be to do with ducks nesting upside down under water.

I think it really comes down to personal preference. I just tried both using Office 2004 and OS 10.5.8

Save directed me to the Documents folder.

SaveAs directed me to the Office 2004 folder.

Both gave me the opportunity to select another location.

Maybe a new habit is the answer for you. Use Save, but create a folder in Documents for "pending folder location" files. Try to make that the first folder listed. Does the old trick of putting a space before the name still work? Or use a number or AAA or something.
