JSI Tip 3186. Nothing happens or the contents of the 'Look in' box changes when you press Save?

When you try to Save in the Save File As common dialog box, nothing happens or the contents of the Look in box changes?

If the File Name box contains an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?), this would be expected behavior on all Windows-based programs, as you can NOT use wildcard characters in a file name.
