Save file to current folder

Specs: Windows XP
Hi There,
When I open a document and make changes and then want to save the changes, when I click File Save As I would like to have the current location of the file to open up so I can save the document without having to go through all the clicks to get to the folder where the document is currently located.

Can anybody help me....

Gemmalouanne, use 'save' rather than 'save as' and it'll be replaced. Next time you open it, the latest version will open.

Thanks Ed in Texas, That does make sense but I have one more question.
Say i'm working on a Word Document and have made changes and then I want to make a PDF of the file and save it to the same folder I have the word document located in. So I go, File, Print and then chose the Adobe Writer to make the PDF how do I get the current folder to come up on the screen to save the PDF to.
Hope you can help me further.
Regards

Gemmalouanne, go ahead and create the PDF. You can save it in the same folder so long as the filename isn't EXACTLY the same as another file. They can have the same name so long as the extension is different. XXX.doc and XXX.rtf is fine. Just as long as the machine can distinguish which you're addressing.
So far as printing, same deal, just be sure you open the correct one and it'll print fine. On mine, if I hit Ctrl+P, it asks what to print and I can select my preference and how it should print as well.

Thanks Ed, but my question is When I click Ctrl & P and select the Adobe Printer then the folder that I want to open to save it to should straight away be the folder that the word document is located in already. At the moment the folder that comes up is My Documents and I have to go through the motions to get to the folder where the word document is located.

Gemmalouanne, can't answer that one. Mine already does that. SWAG, is there a setting to 'use current folder' when opening rather than going back to the beginning? Maybe?
