I would like to have a, say C:\temp folder listed as one of the default options in Save As dialog, or even replace Recent Docs or Desktop, as I never use them for downloading or saving to.
When talking about 'Save As' dialog/window I mean the one you get when downloading from the net, as in 'Save Target As' etc etc, where I see four large icons on the left-hand side: My Recent Documents; Desktop; My Documents; My Computer. It would be great if I can replace the first two with more useful custom locations.

Search didn't yield any meaningful results and I wasn't able to find these settings in either Registry or explorer.exe

I know it's only a saving of a few clicks at a time, but still ... ;) 

Any help greatly appreciated.

You can replace the items in TweakUI > Common Dialogs > Places Bar.
TweakUI is available from
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powert....

Great, thanks! That's the one.

I'll never know why I didn't look at TweakUI options, given that I have it,
miTweakXP and XPtuner installed, and instead wasted time going through
explorer.exe in ResHacker :~// LOL

Thanks again Thorsten - nice one :)

The code etc isn't in Explorer anyway but in comdlg32.
