Try using Save As instead of Export. If you don't see jpg as an option using Save As - check your preferences/file handling for "enable legacy save as"

7 is the new 10! Or is 6 the new 10 and 7 the new 12?

 

Of course, it is not that easy, 7 simply replaces the previous confusing choice of "Great".

 

Save As or Save As a Copy will include more metadata if this is a concern, there are scripts that could be used to clean out metadata.

 

Otherwise Export > Save for Web (Legacy) is flexible.

 

Here is a table of how the different compression levels "line up" between the 3 different methods of producing a JPEG:

 

Photoshop 2021
Save As JPEG, Level 12 Baseline Standard 3,382,351 bytes (3.4 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 100 3,035,739 bytes (3 MB on disk) Export As, Great (7) 2,951,329 bytes (3 MB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 11 Baseline Standard 2,549,259 bytes (2.6 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 92 2,520,944 bytes (2.5 MB on disk)    
Save As JPEG, Level 10 Baseline Standard 2,072,956 bytes (2.1 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 84 2,128,221 bytes (2.1 MB on disk)    
Save As JPEG, Level 9 Baseline Standard 1,813,312 bytes (1.8 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 76 1,826,102 bytes (1.8 MB on disk) Export As, Excellent (6) 1,835,030 bytes (1.8 MB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 8 Baseline Standard 1,597,234 bytes (1.6 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 68 1,579,870 bytes (1.6 MB on disk)    
Save As JPEG, Level 7 Baseline Standard 1,245,822 bytes (1.2 MB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 60 1,301,819 bytes (1.3 MB on disk) Export As, Very Good (5) 1,324,234 bytes (1.3 MB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 6 Baseline Standard 905,668 bytes (909 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 52 1,173,631 bytes (1.2 MB on disk)    
Save As JPEG, Level 5 Baseline Standard 837,439 bytes (840 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 44 742,928 bytes (745 KB on disk) Export As, Good (4) 695,320 bytes (696 KB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 4 Baseline Standard 786,204 bytes (786 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 36 658,904 bytes (659 KB on disk)    
Save As JPEG, Level 3 Baseline Standard 740,953 bytes (741 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 28 596,724 bytes (598 KB on disk) Export As, Fair (3) 590,963 bytes (594 KB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 2 Baseline Standard 753,850 bytes (758 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 20 546,622 bytes (549 KB on disk) Export As, Poor (2) 563,817 bytes (565 KB on disk)
Save As JPEG, Level 1 Baseline Standard 709,518 bytes (713 KB on disk) Save for Web (Legacy), Quality 12 437,863 bytes (438 KB on disk) Export As, Very Poor (1) 498,396 bytes (500 KB on disk)

 

Notes:

* The same RGB 1920 x 1080 px 8 BPC test PSD was used for all saves, no ICC profile included

* Using Save As with Baseline Optimized would add a further ~300-400 KB saving, bringing the results closer to the other two Export methods, apart from minor metadata differences).

* The difference in file size between Save As levels 3/2/1 must be a bug, I tested this twice just in case I made a mistake.
