At the bottom of the Export dialog, look for the After Export pop-up in the Post-Processing section. It's probably blank, so pick an option.

Worked perfectly. I faced this issue on Lightroom 5.7 and Windows 8.1

Thanks for that, works okay opening in Explorer.

But why the error I wonder? I'd never have known this to be the problem. Better LR puts up a dialogue box asking what to do after export, or telling the user to select an option.... Adobe??

Thanks again,
Andrew
