Windows 7: Saving images from IE8 behavior

Saving images from IE8 behavior

Likely this is actually something obvious that I've missed somehow, but its currently got me confused and I can't find answers.

I want to save images from the internet. It doesn't seem like it should be a problem. Maybe its just that I've only just moved to 7, and thus I'm noticing all the little things that are different to XP, but I find it annoying.

Firstly, if I right click and save as, the dialog no longer seems to remember the 'last' folder I saved an image to. Which seems inconvienient.

Then I thought I'd just drag and drop the images to the files instead. But for some reason, that causes every file name to have a [1] added to the end of it.

So I was hoping someone could help me out, either to return 'last folder' or get rid of the [1] adding behavior. Or possibly sugest an entirely different way that will avoid the problems that I just haven't thought of heh.

Apparently it happens because IE treats every tab as a separate process, so settings of one tab may not be carried to another. Although, one wonders why that happens for images only.
