Have you looked in Tools - Options - File Locations Tab

Look at the file location shown for Documents.
Use the modify button to change the default location.

You don't say what version of Word you are using. The instructions above are for Word 2003. Word 2007 is different from memory - use the Office button at top left and select Word Options at the bottom of the dialog box.

Have you tried using Save As to ensure that you are saving the file where you think you are?

Do you have Tools...Folder options...View set to show the full path in both the Address Bar and the Title Bar?

If not,

C:\My Documents\WordDocs

will look just like

C:\My Documents\Office Docs\WordDocs

since they will both display WordDocs.
