Vista Productivity Tip: Save To Desktop
When you download a file with Internet Explorer, and your external storage drives or network drives are offline, a lot of people quickly choose the Desktop as destination.
In Windows XP this has a limitation: when you click the Open Folder button when the download has finished, you get the rather silly message that you cannot open that folder because the file is located on the desktop. I say silly, because when you use the Windows Explorer the Desktop is an existing (virtual) folder.
Luckily Microsoft had some spare time to change this behavior: you can now click the Open Folder button and you're then greeted with a Windows Explorer view of the desktop.
