Set default folders for opening & saving filesin Windows XP?

I'm running Windows XP Media Center Edition with SP3.
Wondering how to change the default folders when I'm saving and opening files.
For instance, when I open notepad then click "open," the default folder it goes to to is the Fonts folder. I do use the fonts folder quite a lot for adding new fonts, but I never want to access it from Notepad. Usually when I am using Notepad I want to open a text file in the MyDocuments folder.
Similarly, when I try to save a brand new file that was created with Notepad, it assumes I want to save to the Fonts folder (which, of course I never do!).
When I right-click to save an image from the web, it prompts me to save it in the My Pictures folder. The only thing I keep in My Pictures is personal photos, however; most of the other photos are in a subfolder of My Documents.
How do I set the default folders for these actions?
I spend so much useless time clicking to get to the right folder & would really like to streamline this process. I'm a webdesigner and create & save many files each day.
