Help to unprotect the default save path in MS Office 2016

Help to unprotect the default save path in MS Office 2016

New member | Level 2

I recently deleted Dropbox from my computer to keep my files local (but still like Dropbox online for some files). However, Microsoft Office 2016 Word and Excel still shows the default save path as "This PC>local dist (C: )>USER>dropbox" I seem to be unable to change that path as it says it is write protected, even if I go to my Office File>Options>Save. It seems like Dropbox changed the default path and now I can't change it back. Does anyone know how to change this?

Hi @AlexMN, thanks for contacting us!

 

In order to understand where you're seeing this error message, could you attach a screenshot so we can see it from here?

 

If need be, you can upload the screenshot to your Dropbox account, share a link to it, and paste the URL here.

 

This will help me to assist further!
