You may also see a suggested "dafaultfilename1.ext" in the filename box, but the filetype box will default to the default application extension for the type of document being saved. You've got that completely wrong, a type always explicitly appears even when the type is implicit (even if it is only *.* for "all files"). Try "save as" in MSPAINT or somesuch for a bmp example.
