    Save-as Dialog Box not showing any thumbnails

    Hi, I was trying to save an image from the internet and my fingers slipped on a key. Since then every time the save-as box opens, where the files should show, it is just grey. I will attach a picture to show the issue. Could someone please assist me in getting back the thumbnails which should show where the grey bit is.

    Usually you can simply hide or show the folders from the link at bottom left in Save As dialog:

    In your case though I am not sure if this is the case because although your folders are hidden, the dialog in your screenshot is showing the Hide folders link when it should show Show folders.

    Hi, I have clicked both hide folder and browse folder and it just shows the same grey box. The picture I uploaded is the one where I have clicked browse folders so it should show the thumbnails but it doesn't.
