On a new Windows 7 Professional PC, I go to "Save As" on various applications, and the Desktop icon and option don't appear on the list.  I can see Libraries, Computer, Network, etc., but not Desktop.  Any idea how to get that option to show?

In the Save As dialogue box, right click in an area that has no icon in the left side by the other icons, and click show all folders.

Or you can navigate to this through My Computer.

Great solution.  I wonder why the "default" was set to not show all folders.  How odd!
