    I must be missing something. I've been using Mac OS X since 2004 and never figured this one out...

    How do you save something, for instance an attachment to a mail message, to a folder that's not immediately under your home directory? I can right-click the attachment, and choose "Save Attachment" to see the popup dialog that says "Save As" and "Where," but that dialog only lets me choose folders that are right under the home diirectory, such as Documents, Desktop and Pictures.

    What should I do to save an attachment to, say, Documents/Work/Drafts?

    TIA...

    Click the up/down arrows to the right of the displayed folder name. That gives you a drop-down menu so you can save it anywhere.

    Thanks for the reply. The up/down arrows you mentioned only show the devices/folders under "Devices," "Favorites" and "Recent Locations." However, the down arrow to the right of the "Save As" edit box does give me the option to choose any folder I like. Problem solved!
