Yes, that did the trick. I have no idea what changed the permissions,
but now all is "right with the world."
Some people have said that saving to the desktop is not a good idea,
however, I have been doing it for years with no ill effect.
I find it very handy to be able to do so, as I use the Desktop as a
temporary holding space for a number of purposes.
It makes things easy to find without having to go down several levels.
Again, many thanks for a quick, concise and accurate answer!
