Photoshop problems saving duplicates

Hello,

I have a couple of Photoshop issues that have recently come up that have never existed previously.  I'm using a Mac with the latest version of PS.  Problems:  

 

1.  When I copy an image using the duplicate option,  I can't find where the dupe  has gone.   Previously, duplicated  images went back into the same file as the original.

 

2.  When I make a copy and use the "save as" option and save to desktop, there is no problem.  But when I get the message about "save changes" to the original image, if I select "don't save", it saves them anyway. Previously, this did not occur.  

 

3.  When I finish working in PS, I can't quit PS.  The only way to exit the program is to force quit.

This was not an issue previously.  

 

4.  Lastly, when I now download images from my camera,  I have to close every image individually as opposed to seeing icons for all the saved images in a box and just closing out the downloading process, as I have done for years previously.

 

If anyone can suggest fixes or indicate something I'm missing or should do differently, I would sincerely appreciate it.

I never had any of these problems previously, so it's frustrating to deal with so many stupid obstacles.

Thanks for your assistance.

When Photoshop starts behaving in odd ways a reset of the Preferences will often help. These can be found in the Photoshop menu on a Mac and the Edit menu on Windows. Look for the "Reset Preferences On Quit" button within the General section.

In reference to your first problem you wrote "When I copy an image using the duplicate option". Are you using the Duplicate option within the Image menu? Yes a duplicate is created but you would always have to manually save it yourself.
