In the save dialog, see “Save models:” is next to a list of models.  Click with the mouse in that list so that only the one you want is highlighted. In your screen shot, it looks like it would help to make the dialog bigger so it is easier to see what’s in the list.

If you click the Help button it shows instructions for using the dialog, or you can see the same thing here:

Most dialogs have Help buttons so you should try reading that before sending questions by e-mail.  I hope this helps,
Elaine
