It saves to your current location, or "present working directory".

You can find this location with the command "pwd".

For example, if my username is "user" and I am working in a folder called "myproject", I might get:

sage: pwd

This directory us usually the place you launched Sage from.

Additionally, at least for certain types of objects, such as graphic animations, you can do

sage:'filename', show_path=True)

so that the full path to the saved file is shown when saving the object to a file.

Thanks, when I do pwd however it gives me u'/home/h34sun' when my folder path should be C:\Users\h34sun would you happen to know why it does this?
