Are you sure you saved it?
CW2 editor doesn't let save before setting info of map.

Just rename it to '[mapname].cw2' (without quotes) and the game should be able to find it. If that doesn't work, try to type '.cw2' after the map name when saving it in the editor (and do that for every future map).

Your last screenshot with the filenames hints to me that you have filename extensions hidden. I would guess that you've actually got something like this on your drive:

Screenshot2.jpg
The Caves.cw2.txt

You can either turn off the hiding of filename extension in explorer, or when you save the file, try putting the name in double-quotes in the save box -- I think that forces Windows to not add an extension: "The Caves.cw2"
