Windows 10 runs Photoshop and Lightroom cc on my PC if I save as my default .tiff as a .jpg will not appear in the Recent files list or as a recent file in the photoshop recent items list seems to be . 'stuck' as the original.tiff image.

This means that I cannot use in the email system as the file size is too large.

any help would be appreciated

Your image probably has layers (or it's 16 bits/color). JPEG does not support layers (or 16 bits/color), so if you try to save a layered image as jpeg, then Photoshop will save a flattened copy as...

I'm not sure I understand your question. The 'Recent files' list is a list of files you recently opened. It has nothing to do with saving images. If you want to save an image as a jpeg, you should choose 'Save as' and in the dialog select jpeg as the file type.

Your image probably has layers (or it's 16 bits/color). JPEG does not support layers (or 16 bits/color), so if you try to save a layered image as jpeg, then Photoshop will save a flattened copy as jpeg and the original remains layered and still needs to be saved as tiff.

Thank you  converting Image mode to 8 bit and 'save as' saves the image as a jpg but I then need to 'reveal in Explorer' to find out where it was filed!

So Ok now and thanks

You define where it was filed in the ‘Save as’ dialog.

I used to be able to save JPG's by doing the "save as"... but today I updated Photoshop to v 22.5.1 and when I went to save as JPG the option isn't there.  The only options it now gives are PSD, Large Document Format, TIFF & Photoshop PDF.

You perhaps have not read any 'Update News' about the changes to [Save As] in v22.4

See the Help Page.

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/saving-images.html

And note the v22.4.2 upgrade that introduced "Enable Legacy [Save As] " to answer the hundreds of questions about the changes.

try this?

Save a Copy

If you’d like to save a layered file as a flat file, you’ll need to create a new version of the document. Also, if you don't see a desired format like JPEG or PNG, use Save a Copy option for all formats and create a preserved version of your document.

To do so, choose:

  • File > Save a Copy 
  • Save a Copy button under the Save As dialog box
