Problem: when opening a PSD by double-click and then doing "Save as..." or Ctrl+Shift+s it would start in the folder path of the PSD. When switching to another folder, doing the save as a JPG and later doing another save as JPG from within the same open PSD, the target folder and file type are reset. I cannot be sure whether this on purpose or not, but it's extremely annoying to have to click through to the target folder all the time. In other situations, like when "Export as", it would remember the last path and also the file type.
What I meant: if this is/was a new feature/setting in one of the recent PS versions and then something that didn't exist before, the default setting has to be "off", so PS behaves as usual. @CoryShubert probably had the thought, but I never activated it myself.
