In Photoshop Batch Processing, it would be great if the Source Folder Window (... Choose ... Browse for Folder) could be resized. It's fixed at a
small size and can pretty painful to use if you're navigating a lot of
folders, or even a few. The Result Folder Window can be resized so why not the source?

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Which OS Version are you using?

The OS open/folder select dialogs should always be resizable.

Chris, Is this something you are able to look into? Do I need to log it as a bug anywhere else? Many thanks. best, Matt

Hello Matt. Unfortunately, Chris was unable to respond to this. However, I have now confirmed the behavior and will log this with the engineering team for repair. To note, this behavior is specific to the Windows side of things (you are able to resize both windows on Mac).

Hello Brett, Thanks very much for this. It will be great to get it fixed. By the way, visiting this page using Firefox I don't seem to be able to log in. Ghostery doesn't seem to be blocking anything vital. If you have any ideas of the cause I would appreciate them. Best, Matt.

Not sure why Firefox alone would not allow you to visit the page. I'm more of a Chrome person myself, so I don't really have any tips to provide. Also, Adobe does not code or host this site, we are simply using the services of GatSatisfaction.com, so they may be a better source for information on browser compatibility.

Great. Now can we get the Batch >Browse for Source and Browse for Destination folders to use the regular Windows Explorer window instead of those antiquated windows NT 4 dialogs.

Since photoshop doesn't run on pre windows 7 systems, there's no need to keep using them.

Jeffrey, Thanks very much for this. I greatly appreciate your help. I noticed the WIA Support menu has the same issue (File - Import - WIA Support... - Browse).

Should log it as a new request? Many thanks. Best, Matt

Jeffrey, just checking to see if you managed to look at the WIA support window post (https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/wia-support-destination-folder-not-resizable-...) and whether this might be fixed. I posted it a while ago but haven't seen any replies. Thanks very much.
