Can anyone tell me why when I click “Save” in  my greeting card program,  it  puts it on my desktop instead of the save file in the program?

Since I’m not sure which program you’re using, I can’t tell you why. It’s possible, you saved something to the desktop  once and the program just defaults to last location where you saved files. But I think I may have a solution to work around it. Instead of choosing Save or clicking the Save icon, which usually looks like this:

Try selecting Save As, which is usually found under the File Menu:

You will probably be given an option to select a which type of file to save it as. Then you should be given the option to choose a location.

Then you can save your card wherever you prefer.
