Ctrl+Shift+S no longer Saves As in Photoshop from PSD files

All of a sudden my photoshop is no longer behaving as it used to. I assume it was updated, but wonder if there's a way to change back to how it used to be.

 

When working in a PSD I could use Ctrl + Shift + S to Save As and then drop down to .jpg or whatever I wanted. That no longer works. Now the only option I have are PSD PFB and TIFF. I have to now learn a new combination of keys Ctrl + Alt + S to save as Copy in order to change from PSD to jpg/png etc.

 

This is very annoying and tedious. Why did Adobe change this? Is it a bug? A Feature? Did something change that I can change back to? I don't see any benifit of not being able to save as other formats directly from a PSD with Save As.

 

This has happened before when I was using a weird colorspace or the bit was wrong. But I have double checked, and opened old PSD files and they all act the same new way.

 

Photoshop v 22.4 (updated 1 day ago) 

Funny enough the new updates says fixes bugs, but seems to have created a new one...

For as long as I've been using Photoshop, Ctrl + S = Save.  

Ctrl + Shift + S = SaveAs which is different now. 

Use File > Save As Copy.

Yes, that's what I said. Ctrl + Shift + S (Save As) has changed. Is Is there any way revert back to the previous Save As, or is this something Adobe can change back? I don't understand why they would change this. What benifit doe this new version of Save As have over the "old" version that had better usability?

Does not fix the problem, it makes another one. No I will have to remove "copy" from the file name as an extra step.

Change your Shift+Ctrl+S shortcut to "Save A Copy..."  Adobe  has changed "Save As..." function.  Use "Save a Copy..."

That sucks though as "save a copy" leaves "- copy" in the file name. Can this be turned off somewhere?

Exactly. Sigh. Why Adobe? I wonder if it is possible like you say, to remove the automatic "Copy" in the filename...

But why are they limiting file formats in Save As in the first place? Now you can basically just Save, there is no more "As"

That's an option, ableit a terrible one as I now have to change the name of the file instead of just a simple tab key + j to save as jpg. Why adobe, why? It makes no sense at all.
