Photoshop is not allowing me to save anything and it is now trying to force me to save to the cloud - something I do not want to do.  Is this a bug in the program? What'sgoing on?

We were able to go into the settings on Photoshop and change so the "save to cloud" box does not come up anymore.   Also, it turned out the save issue seems to have been an error with my hard drive. I shut down, rebooted and everything is working now. Thanks for the thoughts.

When I try to save I get the screen below.  I click on the button on the bottom left to "on your computer" - this is new today and I have never seen this before now.  I do not want to save the Creative Cloud. I just want to save to my drive. I have a separate backup. So I do not need the creative cloud. 

 

When I try to then save the file going through the normal save process... I get the message on the second screen shot.

Are the filename and the path definitely valid? 

Please post more meaningful screenshots. 

 

The »On Your Computer«-setting should stick. 

After saving locally does the Save As-dialog revert to Cloud?
