    Not helpful. When I close WordPerfect x8 the next time I open it the defaukt Open file folder has returned to what it was before, ie the entire file menu.

    Ditto! I might as well use WORD if WordPerfect X8 isn't going to behave at least as well as X6!

    Corel help files and helplines are completely useless. So are their telephone advisers. They all repeat the advice set out above. The way to change the Default Folder permanently is to approach it through Tools, Settings, Files. Why it took someone at Corel a week to work that out I cannot understand. I was first told to reinstall Corel Office, which, of course do not work. I wasted a lot of time before I was eventually told the correct answer.

    Thanks for the tip but, as things turned out, I came across that solution without Corel's help as well. I only went to WPX6 because I'd hate to see it go down the tubes -- WORD makes absolutely no sense & makes tweaking a flyer impossible -- reveal codes is it!
