  • If you have changed the location where UHINt saves files, or if you download files via your Practice Management/EHR software, you will need to navigate to the location where your files are saved after they are downloaded.
  • If you use UHINt and have never changed the locations where files are saved, look for and select each of the following:
    • Program Files (x86) (if you only have a single option for Program Files, select that one)

Once you have the correct location, click OK. Then, click Save.
