Need help with a lost feature in Office/Windows when saving elements as images

Hi everyone, I need your help. I created several tables in PowerPoint (I think is 2016 running un Windows 10). I want  to save those tables as images; I saved the first table in my folder, let´s say is in "D:/Documents/Work/ProjectA/Graphics/Tables". The problem comes when saving the next table: instead of PowerPoint remembering which folder I´m saving my items (Tables), I have to search for my  folder from "This PC>Pictures". Doing this several times is so impractical. Has anyone had the same issue? The answers I´ve found on internet are not satisfactory. Thanks so much.

Hi again, Daniel,

"Alias" is the Mac term for what's called a "shortcut" on a PC, which is a pointer to a designated file or folder. So fuller instructions would be to do this: 

  • Right-click the final-destination folder, and select "Create shortcut." 

  • Move that shortcut into the Pictures folder. 
  • When you're saving a picture, PPT will default to put it in the Pictures folder. Double-click the shortcut to open the final-destination folder, and save the picture there.
