Yea tons of Windows people do that, or e.g. open the file in word and then Save
As to the floppy (which is much, much slower!)!  I first thought of them "poor
souls, how stupid are they", but then I understood that they haven't been
introduced to the file manager.

Most of the people still open Word (or whatever) and click File..Open then
search for the file, despite knowing which folder the file is, and that looking
for it directly in the file manager would be much, much more efficient and faster.
