    File Explorer Save As dialog changed?

    Following the latest Win 10 update, has something changed in File Explorer? In the Save As dialog shown in my screenshots I expect a simple alphabetic order, with folders first then files.

    It gets even more confusing if I show all files, by entering '*.*' into the File name box.

    Click image for larger version.

    Is there some setting I can use to restore the familiar, consistent display please, as many of my (Macro Express Pro) scripts rely on it.

    Note: if it's relevant, I use the Classic Shell file explorer.

    Right click in an empty area and choose "Group By" and change it to something else. Somehow you enabled grouping. This is not something new in any recent version.
