    Users "search" function grayed out when saving documents.


    mainly while saving in adobe--but seen it while saving other things too office


    basically--they are printing to Adobe to save as PDF. in the upper right of the save as popup window, there is a "search" box. that is grayed out and the user cannot enter anything in that box. This is important as they have to save in a directory with hundreds and hundreds of folders, and searching made life easier.


    Note this *seems* to have happened right at our upgrade push to 1903


    I have re-installed Adobe DC pro and same result


    any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Users "search" function grayed out when saving documents.

    Unable to Save to Documents


    I can't move, copy or save anything to my Documents folder. I checked the properties of the folder, under serurity it listed only Home Users and WMP Network Svc. My account name is listed in the srcurity tabs of Pictures, Music, etc., and I am able to save, copy and move to those folders. My account is listed in C:/Windows/Users/myname/Documents under the security tab. How do I add my name to the Documents folder in File Explorer? I think that should fix my problem.

    In a not so critical glitch, my computer will not go to sleep using the power settings in the control panel.
