Ah, so Save to Disk is my friend. I just tested it; it works.

But I don't understand the choice of "Save to disk" and "Save to disk in a single directory." And what's the purpose of the zip file (with an xhtml file inside) which was saved along with my mobi file?

I wonder if you could have the Windows-standard "Save As" command, which would let the user choose the folder and choose a different filename, if desired. (And perhaps be more familiar feeling to Windows users who scratch their heads at some of the more code-oriented commands. )

Does the Save to Disk command save all formats at once?
