Are you seeing this box ( or something very similar)?



Are you pressing the save button which is highlighted in red?

You can go ahead. I have the step by step complete if he still needs help. No worries

If you have a step by step ready, then by all means go ahead, I will refrain from any further comments.

Can you open the same file in wordpad and do the same things? But saving it to the directory you wish?

Yes, Mike. I can move Wordpad or any files other than note pad to any location.

Are the following statements correct?

You can move text files that you created or edited with Wordpad to any other location?

You can not move text files that you created or edited with Notepad to any other location?

Those statements are correct. At this time.

Sometimes I can create a note pad file and save it to the documents library.

I can click and drag those files from folder to folder within the documents library.

But I cannot move a notepad file from the documents library to any folder on the desk top. Not by click&drag nor by cnrl+C, etc.

I'm lost as to whether the OP is having problems moving or saving. I see moving in the post, but the description of what he's doing is saving.
