Hi Tom, yes I’m saving to OneDrive.
Steve thanks for directing me to the Save options. However, I didn’t have to untick Save to Additional Places because there was another box which said Auto save OneDrive and Sharepoint Online Files by Default on Word, and unticking that has done the trick.

Actually, you can stop it.

If you press Alt, then F, then T in Word to get to Options, go down to Save
then tab through and uncheck Save To Additional Places.

Now it will or should always ask you.

All the best

Steve

Hi Adrian, if it's in one drive, this is standard and there doesn't seem to
be a way to stop it. A pain! tom
