by default the query analyzer saves file to c:\documents and settings..... can that be changed?

i cannot find anywhere to set default location. I am referring to the SQL code not the output

Very strange. In my QA, I can select Tools menu and the Options menu.
In the Query File Directory text box in the General tab, I can change the location for my SQL scripts.

Just another possibility:

If the directory to which it was pointing earlier is renamed or deleted, it will again point back to your Desktop folder. Please check whether this is the case with you, otherwise Peso's advice should work for you.
