I don't know why the 'save' is there;-)

Obviously it is so that you can easily save changes to a file that has
already been saved/named, without having to save it to an ever different

Perhaps you are confused...

It *does* save it in the same folder, because it simply saves the changes to the *same document*.

It only saves a document to the TEMP folder if you open it from an email, and then possibly only for certain mail clients (Thunderbird being one).

Again, you are badly mistaken.

If you create a document, and save it to a specific folder, then later open that document for editing, both saves and auto-saves simply save the changes to the document where it resides.

So... either you are badly mistaken, or your computer system is badly broken.
