Export Pattern
Hi,
I dont know how I should export a pattern
I did it before, followed some steps from a youtube video and everything went fine
Now I am trying to export a pattern again but its not working

If I export the pattern: somePattern.pat on my desktop
It doesnt appear in the list of patterns(Bucket FIll > Pattern FIll)
If I try to export it(save it) in C:/programfiles/gimp2
It tells me that I dont have the permission to do so.
I also tried: C:/programfiles/gimp2/share/gimp/2.0/patterns
Still when I try to save it is telling me that I dont have the permission to save there.

So what should I do?
I have windows 7

Thank you for reading and answering my question.

Ninja'd. Ofnuts explanation in pictures

Your pattern file goes in C:\Users\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8\patterns (ignore the typo in the screenshot)

You can export there directly or copy it from some temporary location (Desktop?)

You do not need to restart Gimp to use the new pattern, use the arrows icon under the patterns dialog to refresh the patterns.
Also to note: Gimp will use a jpg or a png image as a pattern without exporting to a patten file.
