How to have files saved in same directory from which they're opened

I’m using LibreOffice to open old MS Works word processing and spreadsheet files that are stored in various folders on my hard drive. When I make changes to those files and bring up the Save dialog, the default path for the save location is a Recovery folder on the D: drive. How do I get the default save location to be the same folder from which the file is being opened?

I have the same question … I hope there is a setting for this.Please help!

I found the solution in Export PDF - default to same directory as ODT/DOC file go to menu Tools:Options:LibreOffice:General:Open/Save Dialogs:Use LibreOffice Dialogs !
