With windows if you save a new file from a certain application, it will usually remember the folder you saved it so the next time you save a new file from that app it will automatically open that folder.
With Ubuntu it's been sort of frustrating that every time I try to save a file from, for example IDLE, I have to navigate to
Home/Documents/Programming/Python/ to save it where I want. Some applications you can set save paths, but not all of them. Is there a way to set up Ubuntu so that when I ctrl-s from the same application, it will remember the previous folder I saved from?
Or at least set up the default location to Documents, to save myself a couple of steps and automatically go to a folder I'm more likely to want to save files in?
Thanks in advance.
