Default folders in 'save as' dialog box - Vista problem

I use turbolister (ebay's bulk listing tool), but this behavour is also exhibited in Internet Explorer (v.8 and previously v.7). When I want to open, or save a file - programs don't always start in the location where I previously saved to or opened from in that program.

This was always the case in previous versions of Windows (XP/2000/9x), but vista obliges me to double-click like crazy to get to the folder that I want - everytime I want to 'Open' or 'Save'. Is there an option in Vista to instruct the OS to always first start in the previous folder location when using the 'Open', 'Save As' commands.

Any help much appreciated.

It's not Vista issue. Every program has its own default "save as" directory.
For instance, to change it in IE, you need to create new REG_SZ key in registry, as described here: http://www.pctools.c...try/detail/842/
