I have about 500 Word documents (Word 2003) to transfer from my PC to the new Mac. I've put them on a flash drive but had trouble figuring out how to get them to the new computer. It has Word 2008 for Mac. I finally found the steps. Open the flash drive (Store N Go), select the document, click File and Save As. It defaults to the Store N Go, so I have to select Documents, then close the file and go to the next one.

It does give me a chance to delete some documents and rename some, but it's going to take a long time to get through all of them, one at a time. Do you know if there's a way to do a mass "Save as...Documents" or to make "Documents" the default save location?

Thanks.

Why don't you just copy them using the Finder, instead of opening them with the application???

Copy and paste from the thumb drive to the docs folder on your Mac. The files are stand alone entities, they do not need to be opened one at a time on the Mac and resaved.

Yes - just select them on the flash drive, and drag them to their new home on the iMac. No need to open them all.
