One thing I love about Linux is that files don't get hidden unless their names start with ".". That's a convention of the POSIX filesystem standard, which nearly every FS usable by Linux follows. You can tell the OS (rather your file browser) to not show you certain file types, but out of the box, dotted files (.bashrc, .bash_history, .local, .config, and so on) are the ONLY thing that gets hidden from view.
OTOH, I didn't even think of checking to see what settings tells me the path for save files is. I'll have to look at that when I get home.
