Good Afternoon, 
I have been experiencing an issue when "saving as" in Indesign that it briefly brings up the save as dialog box to where the file I was working on is but then it changes to the "Desktop" screen when saving instead of the original document is saved. I can hit the back arrow to go to that previous screen but have to do that each time I want to save as. I already checked for updates and did a clean install of InDesign, but

the issue persists. Any suggestions

I'm pretty sure it's system related - not InDesign's fault - user permissions / defaults or something.

Can automate anything - as long as it doesn't require A.I. 😉 and even then 3rd helping hand can be created 😉

Hi @Gilbert5F91 ,

 

Thanks for reaching out. As suggested by Adobe Scripts, it looks more related to OS default however we can try to troubleshoot this, so please try the suggestions shared here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/how-can-i-change-my-windows-10-default-save-as... and let us know if this helps or if you need any further assistance.

Good Morning, 

I did a fresh install on a new machine and it works the way it used to so it is in fact a windows issue. 
@Rishabh_Tiwari the windows support article didn't really fix anything. I am looking into resetting windows explorer settings to see if that will help. Any other suggestions ?
