Thanks for the explanation about OS X.

Well, it's just a matter of what I'm used to. My practice is to shift stuff from the desktop to the appropriate folders within Documents once every 2 or 3 days. I have a vast number of different folders and sub folders within Documents and it takes a while to think where stuff should go. I don't want to drill down into the appropriate folder when I'm doing a quick draft.

The other point is that I create a lot of short drafts and like to see these on the desktop. Most of these short drafts get trashed when I'm shifting desktop stuff into the appropriate folders.

Anyway, I can get used to selecting Desktop when I go to do the first save.

But I'm wondering about

I've always used "Save" ... for a straightforward document that I've just created (not something that needs a different filename). Is there a "best practice" in this respect?

Comments appreciated ...
