Hi, I have 2 computers. Windows XP and Windows 7. Print Shop version 22. When I save any type of projects - the My Documents window comes up by default and I save there. In the past the default window was always My Projects. I would open the P. Shop and on the left hand side would click open and all of them would be there. It isn't a big deal I guess on the My Doc but I would like to know what happened to the other window. It just seemed like a more sensible way to see everthing I have saved.
The default window is My Projects for all Operating Systems earlier than WinXP because that's the way Print Shop 22 was designed.
The default window is My Documents for WinXP and all later Operating Systems because that's the way those Operating Systems are designed.
It is much better to have your projects saved in the My Documents folder - because, when projects are saved in My Documents, those projects will not be uninstalled if Print Shop 22 is uninstalled.
With the earlier Operating Systems, when the projects are saved in My Projects, all projects will be uninstalled if Print Shop 22 is uninstalled. And, this is true for all versions of Print Shop that were designed before WinXP was designed.
It isn't absolutely necessary to save your projects in My Documents. You could create a subfolder in My Documents, then move all of the saved documents into the new folder. Then, if you were ever to upgrade to Print Shop 23, the first time Print Shop 23 was opened it would see your saved projects in that subfolder. And, you would be asked if you wanted to import those projects into Print Shop 23.
However, you will want to keep in mind that if you do create a new subfolder then move your projects into that folder, you will not be able to open those Projects from the Project Gallery until you rebuild the Project Gallery files, as is described in this pinned item:
