Many thanks for asking that question! I was still using the old 
Experimental`FileBrowse[].

I think you can use the following form to obtain a directory location:

FileNameSetter[Dynamic[folder], "Directory"]

Then you can you can combine this with a filename as follows:

newfilename = folder <> "Example1.nb"
