[texworks] Save to and open from a specific folder

I think there is no automatic way to save from TeXworks to a 
specific folder.
But you can save your .tex files in the desired folder using 
the File/Save dialog. The same for your pictures from your 
picture's programme.

Once you have saved a file from TeXworks, using the File / 
Recent files list, you can automatically load a file without 
specifying/searching its path.
(Or you can go to your LaTeX folder and double-clic on the 
file name.)

For the pictures, it will search the image from the folder 
where your .tex file is, just use the graphicx package and 
the instruction \includegraphics[any 
option]{name_of_the_file_ without_extension}.

You could also save your pictures in a sub-folder of your 
Latex (.tex) folder and issue the name of the file accordingly.

Pay attention, as much as possible do not use accented 
characters or blanks in the names of folders and files.

Happy (La)TeXing
