    This post in one of dalchina's links might point to a possible cause, a bug in the application's ability to deal with changes to items on-screen.

    One (temporary) solution is to set "Cascaded Windows" option under Taskbar options. This allows the two problem programs to be maximized any number of times during computer on sessions. For each time computer is started or restarted, the Cascaded Windows option has to be re-enabled for each session.
    The other (apparently) permanent solution is to set for each of the problem programs - select from problem program icon > Properties/Compatibility/Change high DPI settings - enable "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" and "Scaling performed by:" set to System (Enhanced).

    I'd still like to see a screenshot of the SaveAs dialog to see whether or not we are dealing with a standard dialog type.
    And please do respond to my second info request in post #10 as well.


    Best of luck,

    ALL other programs including File Explorer (and other file management utilities) display Date as Date Modified. I'd love to find one that behaved like the problem app, but so far no luck.

    I'll post a screen shot later, but processing videos on this app are very slow, even on my 12C/24T Ryzen and nVidia RTX 3060. A 1-hour video typically takes 7-8 hours, but the results are worth every precious minute.

    I downloaded Topaz Video AI from their website (you can run it in trial mode) and checked out the Save As dialog. It's a standard Windows dialog and it worked just fine for me. That is, it displayed with the same defaults as any other dialog, I could change the view to whatever I wanted, and the view stuck from one session to another.

    Sounds like a Windows file dialog issue to me.

    @hurricane51 Try running WinSetView to set your preferred default folder views. This should clear up the problem.

    Just a note, a number of programs I have and have worked with that use Save or Save as do not open the full File Explorer, just a more-limited version of it and not all things work or work the same as in the full version.

    That's a handy little utility. I ran it and tested it it a few times. Unfortunately, Topaz has a bit of a brain-dead interface, and as soon as you specify a destination it begins its processing. In order to test the changes from WinSetView, I'll need to run through a number of configurations, closing and opening the app, re-booting, etc. Right now I have a video that needs to get finished, and it takes about 7 or 8 hours of processing to finish. But so far, it looks good and it also gets all of my folders organized, something I thought was impossible with the Windows options, going back to forever. Thanks.

    None of them do.
    They open a Common Dialog Box that looks like File explorer but is not.

    All the best,

    Well, setting all the views (there are nearly 30 that WinSetView identifies!) seems to have solved the problem. It also gives me a great tool to quickly reset views for other PCs I have and maintain (the relatives...). Thanks to all for your input.
