    MS Word (Office 2016) Save defaults to iCloud

    For example, if I write a document the only option Word gives me is "iCloud" as a saving location.

    It does not give you the option to save locally?

    Any ideas?

    Running Sierra? Did you choose to save your documents to iCloud as an option?

    Open System Preferences, iCloud, iCloud Drive. Remove the check from the box that says: "Desktop & Documents Folder".

    That should direct all your documents and folders back to the Finder. Office Word will then allow you to save your documents to the Documents Folder on your Mac. Make sure you backup your documents first!
