I was trying to update files for my job, save them in their appropriate folder locations, and open them again from their appropriate locations. ... *) I can't save files (Excel, Word, PDF, etc) directly into desired folders. I've been saving the needed files in other folders for now, but it's greatly interfering with my file organization.***) I can move files between folders, but when I try to open them from their new location, I get a message saying "Sorry, we couldn't find *file name*. Is it possible it was moved, renamed, or deleted?" However, when I move the files back to their original folders, I can access them just fine.
This was especially frustrating because it greatly interferes with my ability to work.
This can be rectified by restoring my ability to save files directly into existing and newly created folders, as well as access the files.
