Can't set folder to save Notepad file


Recommended Posts

I am trying something simple and am missing the key piece.

 

I am trying to allow the user to select the folder to save a notepad file to.

 

I use the Variable Set String with folder prompt to get the path into %Foldername%.

 

When it comes time to save the processed file I have tried the “Open folder in explorer to” & “Change directory/folder to” to no avail.

 

Can you help with what I am missing?

 

Thanks!

I think Notepad defaults to the current user's "My Documents" folder. So any folder structure would start from there. And don't forget about networked drives. Why not just use <Ctrl><S> to bring up Notpad's save dialog box and let the user select the folder, yuo could pre-fill in the file name.
