Windows 7: Win7x64 "Save As" Dialog Causes Hang

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Apologies for double posting, but I've managed to solve this problem, and I thought it worth posting.

No matter what I try to save to the desktop, "desktop" no longer shows up in the save to/save as dialog boxes as an option for where to save the file. I think I mis-clicked something in that dialog box to remove it, but now I cannot get it back.

Restore the "save or open" dialog window
Hi! I "told" Maxthon (i.e. Internet Explorer) to open f4v files with VLC. However, I'd like to have back the dialog window that asks if I want to open or save such files. How do I do that? :o Thanks, diodorus
