Windows 7: any way to keep "Save as" folder tree open?

any way to keep "Save as" folder tree open?

I'm running 7 home premium.
When I open Windows Explorer or the Save As window, the Documents library or the C: drive or the external drive I JUST had open, is now closed.

It would save me a lot of time and clicking if there were a way to keep it open to the last state it was in.

Possible?

Not sure if this is what you want but worth a look,
Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder[2]=File Folder Settings
Or this,
Library - Set Save Folder[2]=File Folder Settings

Your fix has nothing to do with the issue he's experiencing - keeping windows open in its last state. Sorry
