        Hi Andress, I meant I don't want to save all my queries in the default path (Find-Change \ GREP), because I don't need it in every time. So I want to save it in another folder and when I need it, I will load it temporarily like I writing a code without save it.
        I hope the idea is clear now.
        Thanks a lot

        I'm sorry to say, but your detailed explanation doesn't make it easier to understand the purpose of your request.

        You can put XML files of your own with new GREP query definitions in this directory: C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 13.0\en_US\Find-Change Queries\GREP

        And if you want to, I'm sure you can direct the above folder to another path using a Symlink (ln -s) on Mac, or a junktion on Windows using the mklink /j command.

        Perhaps this information solves your question?

        For more explaining:
        We needn't many queries to save it in the default folder of (Find-Change Queries), but we can save it in another folders in computer, so it's will be very useful to load this query without save
