I just installed APACHE Open Office. Open Office saves to the ~/Documents folder. Which, for me, is extremely to find. That's the apparently ONLY (default) setting Open Office allows. How can I save my documents to my Desktop (~/Desktop) instead of the documents folder?

    Chill. Doesn't it ask you where to save it when you press Command-S on your Mac? If not, try File > Save As and it should give you a menu to save it anywhere. – numbermaniac Jun 6 '18 at 1:23

    How is ~/Documents "extremely hard to find?" In Finder, click on Go, then Documents. You can also press Shift-Command-O and it will open it from anywhere. I'm not seeing the issue. – Allan Jun 6 '18 at 1:54
