Is there an option that PS asks if "I really want to save"?

I have a "concern" that I save files without wanting to do that, in a hassle etc. Is there an option that PS would always ask if I "really" want to save after I have pressed buttons on my keyboard for saving??

You could change the keyboard shortcut to run a Script that does that instead of saving right away.

You could have someone create a javascript to warn you prior to saving then use the Scripts Events Manager (File/Scripts/Scripts Events Manager) to apply when you Save a Document - no need to remap shortcut keys.

Are you sure that meets the OP’s needs? 

If the Save Event is triggered isn’t the Saving already happening?

Agreed, Events are triggered after completion.

There is a "Start Save Document" event that is triggered, so a script can run before the save completes.

Good one! 

 

Personally I would still prefer assigning the shortcut to a Script, though.

Then you should write one to meet your needs. 

Do you have any JavaScript-experience? 

 

Edit: 

// 2022, use it at your own risk;
if (app.documents.length > 0) {
    if (activeDocument.saved == false) {
        var theCheck = confirm ("really save?");
        if (theCheck == true) {
            activeDocument.save()
        };
    };
};

I added a Script to the previous post that presents a confirm-dialog before saving.

Unfortunately I haven't yet found an opportunity to test the script 🙂

Hi! It took just a little more than one month I did the test: The script works fine! Thanks! I also like to tell that my earlier problem with the script from Stephen_A_Marsh found a reason (I fortunatelly got the functional scripts from Stephen :): Also this time I used TextEdit to change the appendix to jsx. It looked fine on the desktop, with the file name plus .jsx, but the script didn't work. Now I looked at the info of the file and found that there were two appendixes in the info table, the file name plus .txt.jsx. That was not visible on the desktop, only .jsx. After deleting .txt, the script began working! Regards, Tuomas

To add, I just made some major changes to a PS file, was a bit nervous in saving, and pressed Enter. ... After that there was a happy feeling when I was first asked if I really want to save. I answerd, Yes. 🙂

Adding to the code from @c.pfaffenbichler the following will also offer to Save As an unsaved document (as the original code only works with previously saved files):

 

// CODE REMOVED, NEEDS MORE WORK!

 

I would think that closing the doc without saving could also be a logical addition when no is pressed.

If you're concerned about saving, when you don't want to save, don't use cloud documents. They will save by just closing them, without any warning.
