Use 'save as'. This is what I just tried select File->save as Near the top you'll find the default directory. Change that to be the directory where you want your file to go Type the name you want for your file in the box further down labeled File name. The default value is untitled 1.

This was on version (Unix)

Have your PATH settings been changed? On my Linux System system the settings are stored in TOOLS > OPTIONS > LIBREOFFICE > PATHS > MY DOCUMENTS. Change the path to point to your desired folder.
