Very limited saving options

The only thing I did different today was I rendered a video and now I can't save my images as JPG/JPEGs.

 

When I click File > Save As > Save As Type, it used to give me a large list of options, now I only have PSD, PSB, or TIFF. 

 

It never used to be this way before, and I already have a JPEG version of this file, but I changed a couple words and need to update it.  I tried using other files, including some very small files, but still have the same problem.

Hi Since the update to v22.4, if your file contains items that are not supported in your required format (e.g. layers or 16 bits/channel) then the file format is moved to the Save a Copy menu. This was driven by changes in the Mac Operating System, although the changes are applied to both Mac and Windows versions to keep them aligned. It make a lot of sense. If all content is supported, Save As, if the document has content that is not supported and will therefore be lost, Save a Copy. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/whats-new.html...

Did this update go into affect like 10 minutes ago? Because that's when this started happening with all my files after rendering that video. It all worked perfectly before this. 

 

Why do I have to save everything as a copy now? Whole thing seems pointless, but it works.

As explained above, it was introduced in 22.4 (deployed over the last couple of days) and was driven by changes in the recent Mac operating system. Adobe had no choice but to change on Macs but both Windows and Mac versions were changed so that they remain aligned.

If you have Auto Update turned on - it could have upgraded without you knowing.

"...........most of adobe users are windows OS based."

You base this opinion on what? It is a long time since I've seen Adobe publish the split but it used to be close to 50:50.  It is most likely swayed towards PCs now - but having answered questions on this forum for quite a few years, Macs are not a tiny minority of users.
