Windows 7: How to remove the suggestions when I press "Save Image"

How to remove the suggestions when I press "Save Image"

I download a lot of images for my job and was wondering how to get rid of the save suggestions from the "Save Image As" window. I don't mean when you click on windows explorer and try to find a file, I mean when you find an image and press "Save Image As...". How do I remove the suggested save titles from the bottom of the window? I've tried highlighting them and pressing delete, but that doesn't seem to work. Forthcoming help will be appreciated.

The easiest way is to just start typing your preferred filename in the filename box. There may be some registry editing that could eliminate any suggestions, but I'm not aware of the combination.

This can be done by adding an entry in the registry for the Common Dialog Boxes
Hide recent used files inside dialog

Greetings The Windows 7 "Save As" dialog isn't as resizable as the XP version. Called "Save As" in Firefox, "Save Webpage" in IE. If I could remove the search box to the right of the path at the dialog top I could make the dialog narrower and not obscure so much of the web page. When I...
