Simplest way to open my script files?

Hi everybody, I usually save my scripts in the default place offered my SSMS (the location of that place is hard to find). However, if I open a script from a disk from different location, now when I need to open my saved scripts it looks in that folder and not in the folder where all my scripts are kept. How can I open the script from the right place if I don't remember where that folder is and I don't want to re-start SSMS? Thanks a lot in advance.  Premature optimization is the root of all evil in programming. (c) by Donald Knuth Naomi Nosonovsky, Sr. Programmer-Analyst My blog

Office 2010 will not open Office 2003 Documents on SharePoint

Going directly to a document in the document view and selecting any of them will present the Read Only/Edit prompt and when clicking Read Only Word or Excel 2010 depending on the document type will open to a blank page and just sit there. If you do a search and then click on the documents that are returned in the search results, it opens as expected.

Powerpoint ppsx files open as read only in sharepoint with not option to edit

With Powerpoint 20007 in sharepoint(MOSS 2007) the PPSX files are opening in read only mode with no option to edit to be found. 2nd issue is ppsx files do not open on any persons computer as a show.  Is it possible to change this? How do I change this so I can edit the slides? Current "bad" solution is to save to local drive than upload them over the location  on sharepoint.
