What might be the problem here and how to resolve?

    Whenever you save a new file in excel , it opens up a "Save as" windows , mentioning where to save new file.

    You just have to pick a place/drive to save this new file .

    The problem you might be facing is due to : It automatically choose a location of which you have no idea.
    So, just do it manually , the problem will no longer exist.

    Even if you are facing this problem, you can search for the new saved file in "Windows Search" option.

    hi friend, if you face this problem recently i suggest you to perform system restore, by doing this you can get back to previous state.
    if still face the problem try uninstalling ms office and also remove all the traces from your system..
    once it is completely removed restart your system and install it again.

    hope you will find the difference after doing this.

    happy to assist you
