Great SAP Tip – Specify Default Directory

Did you know that you can specify the default download location for files?

No longer do you need to download to or navigate away from the sapworkdir whenever you wish to download files from SAP. Simply use transaction SO21.

    How can the default download location for files be changed globally for all users (or at a system level)?

    I don’t want to maintain parameter GR8 in SU01 for all users as that is at an individual level and they will not have access to tcode SO21.

      Hi Jane,

      You had me scratching for a solution. It appears as if this is controlled as a registry setting when the GUI is installed. You may want to look at these 2 OSS notes 1442303 and 519852. Sorry I dont know a quicker solution.
