    How do I save something to the desktop?

    When I used Windows XP and I wanted to SAVE a file, I would click on "Save
    as" and a drop-down menu would appear that included "Desktop." Then the file
    would appear on the desktop or in a folder that I had created on the desktop.
    In Windows Vista, the "Desktop" is not on the drop-down menu any more. How
    can I save something to my desktop now?

    At the top where it has your name, followed by folders, hit the first arrow
    and it will drop down and show you your desktop location. It was hard to
    find at first, but after a while, it's fast and easy!
