Windows 7: Can't save file in desktop folder

Can't save file in desktop folder

I have a folder on my desktop "my notes", it has several subfolders. When I have a file I want to save, I click on "save file as" name my file and then click on the "my notes" folder which opens up with my subfolders listed. My problem is, when I open the "my notes" folder, windows 7 defaults to the first subfolder listed. I want to save my file in the main folder of "my notes" not any of the subfolders. Can someone tell me how to save the file in the main folder of "my notes" not the subfolder?
Thanks,
Wisln

Hey Mr. Demon, thanks for the quick reply. I narrowed it down somewhat. This only happens when I''m trying to save a pdf file. If I save an word or xcel file then when I open "save as" I see the first picture you showed and it's easy to save in the "my notes" folder. However, if its a pdf file, when I click "save as" it opens a window that doesn't have all my folders in the left pane, but a window that has "recent place" "desktop" etc. When I click desktop which is where "my notes" folder is stored, it opens the main folder with all the subs listed and defaulted to the first folder.

Got it, you second pic did it. When I click on the text it brings up a drop down menu that I select "my notes" again and it saves the file. Thanks

Probably it doesn't and my question is a long shot - but I recently toasted a drive, and it had many folders and files which I have little memory of. I also never used one of those nice apps that makes a list. Any help appreciated. Much obliged. Tt
