Just click Ctrl + Save or Option + save.
I, by habit, do this every few minutes. I've lost work in the past and time is money.

Pressing ctrl-F5 (save) only saves the window above the designer. Also, the code inspector window does not have any buttons for save. Thanks for the idea.
THe code inspector is only showing the code in the file. If you save the FILE you'll save the code. Try using Command-S and you'll see.
Still not working. I will try and give an example:
monitor1 monitor2 file edit view insert
Index.html code open, active and
changes made. Ctrl-S does
Index.css code window Designer window
So as you see, I am working in the code inspector window on monitor2. If it is open to the same file as the code window on monitor1 (the split view code window), then ctrl-s does indeed save the file. But why would I want the same code open in two windows? No, the value of having dual monitor and the code inspector window is the ability to view more than one code file at a time. So I make a change in the code inspector to Index.html and try to save. I have 2 options: A) On monitor 1 change the split view code window to show index.html and press ctrl-s. B) On monitor 1 go to file-> save-all.
Either way I have go back to monitor1 and fiddle around to save the code I modified on monitor 2.
By the way, thanks for looking into this. Its rather complicated to explain.
Thanks for the attempts at trying to help me. I guess there is no easy way to save what the code inspector is working on, unless of course its the same file as what the main code window has open. Which really renders dual monitor layout obsolete in my opinion. Unless my program or settings are incorrect and I'm just a dork. So I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for another program to use in place of code inspector. I will be mostly looking at html, js and php files on the second monitor.
How are you getting two different files displayed? The only way I know how to do that would be to unmaximize your document window and tile the two file windows. Have you tried that?
I'm still not quite sure I understand your original question though.
Woot, thanks! I think future releases of dreamweaver should have a save button in the code inspector, but thats my opinion.
Ctrl+Shift+S to save all will work wonderfully!
And only seeing one code file at a time would be like only reading one book at a time, wait what?
Ack, thats the hotkey for save-as, not exactly what I'm looking for. It IS a bit faster than going to monitor 1 as I can do ctr-shift-s + ENTER + ENTER. But I like making many quik, miniscule changes to the html and then refreshing the webpage behind it.
