    Microsoft Photos Changing Default "Save As" folder


    This problem just started when Microsoft Photos updated in 2023. When I open a photo, edit it, and then click "save as", it wants to save in the last folder where I was working previously. I want it to go back to how it used to be and when you click "save as" , it saves into the same folder as the original photo and renames the file to show it is a copy. For example: original file is 1.jpg then the "save as" file would be 12.jpg. Just how it used to be. I cannot find a setting anywhere to change this. I've seen this question asked before on Microsoft community but not answered. Someone ha

    :)

  2. Photos saving to a different folder

    Hi Ricky,

    Thank you for showing interest in Windows 10.

    I can imagine the inconvenience you are experiencing and will certainly help you in the right direction to fix the issue. However, I would appreciate if you could answer a few questions to narrow down the issue in order to provide
    you with better assistance.

    • Which application you are using for editing photos?
    • Are you logged in as administrator account?
    • The folder where the saved file move, does that folder too have that photo previously?
    I would you to set picture library as default and then see if it helps you to fix the issue. Refer to the steps provided below to restore it to default.

    • Press Windows key + Q.
    • Type Libraries in the search box.
    • Right click on Pictures, Select
      properties.
    • Click on Restore Defaults.
    • Click Apply and then OK.

    Do get back to us with all these information and result of proposed suggestion. We will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,

    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

    To do so, follow the below steps:


    • Open the folder where the photos are saved.

    • Click on View tab.

    • Click Group by, then click Date.
