    Places bar missing in Windows 10 file open/save dialog box


    I upgraded from Win 7 so do not know if the places bar (on side of box) was present in Win 8. Having the places bar was very handy for me in Win 7. I had customized the menu to list my most used folders. The Win 10 dialogue box presents you with a tree on the left side making you drill down to your folders each time. I would appreciate any work arounds, customization tips or links to articles that address this issue, including 3rd party apps.

    Thanks...

    :)

    Image Preview and Recent Places in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Is there a way to restore the Recent Places functionality when using the Save As dialog box and Open dialogue box? This was a very handy feature that seems to be missing in Windows 10.

    Thanks.

  3. Saving .jpg files other than with Windows Media Player

    My operating system is Windows 10 and I am trying to save the file into a folder using File Explorer. When I click on the link to the file, the 'what do you want to do with (name of file)?' dialog box appears and I choose 'save as'. The file explorer dialog
    box then appears but the only option I am given in the 'save as type:' drop down menu is Windows Media Player. Once I have saved the file, I then can 'open with' another application, such as Photos, but it's annoying that I can only save the file with Windows
    Media Player in the first place.
