How to force Acrobat and Reader to default to the Windows File/Save Dialog?

I'm very frustrated. In my PCs I have either Acrobat DC or Reader DC.  (I have three main PCs.)

When I go to File > Save As, an Adobe dialog box comes up with some recent locations to save. I then have to select "Choose a Different Folder" which opens the default Windows file/save dialog box.

Is there an option to force the Windows dialog box to open by default? Not sure why Adobe has a custom one, all my other Windows apps use the default, which is much easier.

Has Adobe added a feature for save to default to the last file location?  Similar to other users sometimes I have to save multiple documents to the same file and it is a slow and cumbersome process to repeatedly have to select the file location instead of simply defaulting to the last file location used.

Please help!
