What am I doing wrong? If for example, i would like to save a document in a sub-folder in My Documents, I have to save it first in the general My Documents file. Then open My Docs and drop the document I just saved into the sub folder. Is there a way to see sub-folders when saving?

    Press the blue button with the triangle at the top of the window.

    Mark, Most programs have a default directory to save files, most of the time it's My Documents. To save in a subdirectory below that you can select "File" - "Save As" -... You will then have the choice of directory/subdirectory.

    Um, no you don't need to do Save As. You are correct that many programs do default to a specific location, others default to the last folder you saved to or to the folder the file was opened from. However, you can navigate anywhere you want in the Save dialog by following Niel's instruction: expand the dialog by clicking the disclosure triangle and you get a full navigation pane.
