Someone at Microsoft Was Not Thinking Clearly…

I have Windows 10 installed, and when I want to look at a photo, say one that is saved on my phone, the Microsoft Photos app is the default viewer.  It has a neat little editor with a couple functions.  The one I use most often is to crop.

If you save the cropped photo, it overwrites the existing file.  Understandable.  But if you Save As…, instead of giving you a dialog box and letting you specify where you want it to go (say, on your desktop), it instead saves the file to this folder:

C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\SavedPictures.library-ms

That’s not terribly user-friendly.  If you see if soon enough, there is an “Open Save Folder” dialog that occasionally shows up, otherwise you are left to root around in the filesystem to find where it put the file.

How about a folder dialog, Microsoft?
