Stop saving to SkyDrive as default

Problem: There’s some confusion as to which specific kinds of Office 2013 installs lead to SkyDrive being set as the default location for both File Open, and File Save As. If you aren’t sure if your specific copy of Office 2013 uses SkyDrive as a default, restart one of the Office apps, create a new, blank document, and click File, Save As. If SkyDrive is highlighted (you may have more than one SkyDrive account accessible), that’s your default.

Solution: It’s easy to change the default if you know where to look. Click File, Options. On the left, choose Save. Then under the Save heading at the top, check the box marked Save to Computer By Default.
