Infopath 2010 Tip: Change the quick publish location
Learn how you can change the publish location after you have previously published an InfoPath form template, used the quick publish functionality in InfoPat 2010, and would like to republish the InfoPath form template but then using a different publish location.
InfoPath 2010 comes with a nice new feature that allows you to quickly republish a previously published InfoPath form template by clicking the Quick Publish button.

Unfortunately, though, I’ve noticed that many InfoPath users do not know how to change the publish location after they have previously published an InfoPath form template and have subsequently been using the Quick Publish button.
I’m not sure what the reason for this is. Perhaps it’s because when you switch to the Backstage (File tab), the first button that you are greeted with is a larger version of the Quick Publish button on the Info tab.
If you are one of those InfoPath users who does not know how to change the quick publish location, the solution is quite simple: Just republish the form template using the same method you used when you first published the form template.
So click File > Publish, select the same method you used to publish the InfoPath form template when you published it for the first time, and then go through the publishing steps again. The next time you use the Quick Publish button, InfoPath should remember the new publish location.
