    A) I saved a pic from the net, but when it popped up a window to choose the location to save it to, I can't find a way to access subfolders under main options such as "Pictures" or Documents.

    B) Because of that, I saved them to my desktop and had to open the finder, find the folder I originally wanted it saved in, and then dragged it into that folder. Once I got it there, I wanted to rename it, but I can't find the option with right click or up in the menu bar when the picture is selected. How do I rename the file?

    A) there should be a small triangle or something like that somewhere in the save window that will let you see the file browser (just play around with it :)

    B) click once on the file name to select it, wait a second then click on it again to edit (same as in windows)

    Doesn't hitting enter let you rename files?

    Click the text of the name (not the icon) and it should highlight and be changeable.
