Re: How to get location from "File Save" dialog

Steve: THANK YOU! Excellent post and very helpful.

I see the same behavior that you describe, while playing with this in Word
2010. ALT+N takes you to the file name field, except when focus is in the
address bar. In addition to your work around, I can TAB out of the address
box then ALT+N and that works fine. Weird.

Anyhow, again, thanks, this is very useful.

Once you're in the Save As dialogue, you can press Alt-D to move focus to
the location area and read it. You should then be able to press Alt-N to
move back to the file name area, but that doesn't work for me in Word
What I do is press Alt-T to go to the Save as type control, then Shift-Tab
to the filename area.
