Web Page printed to file ends up in hidden folder

Posted: 10-20-2008, 12:06 PM
Hey all, maybe somebody can tell me how to stop this really annoying
behavior.

I use the Microsoft Office Document Imaging driver to print my cellular bill
to a .TIFF file so I can submit it on my expense reports.

When I print... I (quite definitely) choose the folder:

C:\Users\myUserName\Documents\Expenses\Internet+Ce llular

But the file actually gets saved into a hidden folder:

c:\Users\myUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s\Temporary Internet
Files\Virtualized\C\Users\myUserName\Documents\Exp enses\Internet+Cellular

This is annoying--mainly because I can't remember that rediculous path.

How do I put a stop to it?

A better way would be to print it to a PDF, but that entails purchasing
third party software.

Cari, I appreciate the response. However TIFF is the preferred format for
our expense report system. So MODI is probably the right choice.

I never had this probelm with the MODI print driver on XP, nor do I see it
if I print to file from within a desktop application. It seems related to
web security, but I can't nail it down to anything specific.
