How do I choose where to save files?

On e-learning, there are .pdf files that I want to save to a specific folder on my mac, but when the open save option comes up, it does not allow me to choose a specific location, what's up with that?

This is the only option I get...it automatically saves it to download file...I want the option to save it to where I want.

The downloads destination is in the preferences of your web browser. If your using Safari, click Safari>Preferences>General Tab

or if you right click on the file, and choose Save file as, you should be able to select where you want it to go.

That looks like Firefox and it is not a "save dialog", it is an "open dialog".

Once the .pdf is opened in Preview or whatever other application you like, you can save it to wherever you want.
Or go to Firefox Preferences and change the default download folder.
Or right click on the link to the .pdf file and select "Download linked file as" or something similar worded.
