Word (Office 2013 ) Quick 'Save As' to a different folder required.

Is there any way to get rid of the superfluous new "Save As" screen in Office Word 2013?

I always save my documents in hundreds of different folders and having to click the 'browse' folder to be able to choose which folder to save to is annoying the hell out of me.

In fact, I'd prefer most of the 2013 visual style to diappear if possible. It really is headache inducing.

Just discovered found a very good workaround. Adding a "Save As" icon to the quick access toolbar bypasses the 2013 styling rubbish and pops you straight into the old style 'explorer' dialog.

'F12' does the same.

Next stop Opening... (Come on Microsoft... "File > Open > Computer  > Browse"... Really? ffs!)

For this you'll nee to tick "Don’t show the Backstage when opening or saving files" in

File > Options > Save

for the quick access toolbar trick to work with that function.
