    I have IE 8.06. When I right click and try to save a picture It allways
    tries to save it in "MY PICTURES". Is there any way to make it permanentley
    go to the folder of my choice???

    Change this registry value from "My Pictures" to another folder:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders]
    "My Pictures"="C:/\Path To\\A Folder"

    I made the change and rebooted. I then rechecked the change with Regedit
    and it was there. I then brought up OE and tried to save a picture. It went
    back to MY Pictures. I re-checked with regedit and the change was gone. It
    seems that OE resets it to My Pictures, since the change was there before I
    brought up OE.

    Do you really want to change the location of My Pictures?
    That is not the way I interpreted your original post but if so, then
    you have been given the wrong information for XP.

    For Windows 2000/XP the key to change is to:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
    Shell Folders]

    No, I do not want to change the location of MY Pictures. I want "Save
    Picture" in OE to NOT allways come up wanting to save it in My Pictures. I
    have to change it's location every time I try to save a pic. Is there a way
    to get OE to do that????

    Part of the confusion here, I think, is the fact that you originally posted
    about saving pix in IE when you're really asking about saving pix in OE.
    That being said...

    When you save the first pic, you have to change the location. Do you then
    find that chosen, changed location "sticks" when you save one or more other
    pix /during the same OE session/? [yes/no]

    Sorry, I put OE by mistake. I'm really only interested in saving pics in
    IE.
