  1. Change Save-As dialog box default settings


    I am frequently building PDFs from excel files as a compliance practice for invoice backups. When doing so, after changing my file type to .pdf, I always have to manually select "Minimum Size" and "Options - Publish What - Selection". Is there any way to set these two items as the default when saving as PDF?

    :)

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Hello -
    Thanks for the return. Before I undertake changing the Registry, I have a question.
    The steps in my Registry, for my version of Windows 10, were a bit different, but I think I eventually got to the right spot.
    The last step is to change the number of places you want to list in Recent Places. In my case, the default Max Display listed 50 as the number. So, if I were to change that number, how do I know the Save As page will be one of those places? Or, a similar question, will this registry change delete the tab Recent from my Save As page? This is what I would like to happen.
    When I received my computer in Nov. 2016, the Recent tab was not listed in the Save As page. Something caused it to be added over time. Which brings me to this second question. Would there be any benefit in deleting the changed registry listing and reverting back to the default listing? See attachment.
    Jerry

    View settings for This PC in Save Dialogs

    You are correct about Save/SaveAs/Open being different from File explorer itself. All these dialogs are a separate Windows component called Common Item Dialogs.

    I have never had a problem getting mine to keep my changes so I suggest trying
    Reset Open and Save As Common Item Dialog Boxes - TenForumsTutorials
    and, if the problem is not solved, asking for guidance in that tutorial thread.

    Best of luck,
    Denis

    Save As + Browse Dialog Box

    I have Windows 10 and have recently noticed a change in the “Save As” “Browse” dialog box. The dialog box used to open with the File tree on the left side. Now it opens with a list of: Author, Type, Title, etc. How can I change this dialog box back to
    the previous version?
