By using the code, it would save the pdf file to the browsed location in the file dialog

just if possible if it could anyhow retrieve the browsed location (from the file dialog) to a textbox

and use path in the textbox and save the pdf file back to this path (from the textbox) ?

private static void SetResponse(string fileName)
        string attachment = "attachment; filename=" + fileName + ".pdf";
        HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment);
        HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "pdf";
        HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("Pragma", "public");

  protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        FileStream fs = File.OpenRead(Server.MapPath("~/Scripts/1.pdf"));

        byte[] buffer = new byte[(int)fs.Length];
        fs.Read(buffer, 0, (int)fs.Length);

        dNextCopyRunningNumber += 1;

        bSaved = true;
