See all files in save dialog

When using Save As, the save dialog only shows files with certain file extensions, which causes me trouble, so usually I simply enter a * character and press enter. This causes the save dialog to show all files.
But this no longer works in Notepad++ for some reason. (It still works in other applications.) So now I have to fiddle around with the mouse to find “All files .” in the drop-down, which is quite a bother, especially because this choice isn’t remembered.
Is there another way to always have it show all files in the Save dialog?

If you don’t mind tripling the amount of typing, entering this in the “File name:” box and pressing Enter seems to achieve what you want:
It’s really just the “All types” mask, but quicker than choosing “All types (*.*)” from the dropdown.
Cheezy solution, I know…but I use it myself, rather often. :)
