When closing and saving files on the Swedish Mac version of Photoshop 2017.0.1 with the shortcuts cmd-W and cmd-S, the cmd-S command will select "Do not save". Teh problem was there in 2017.0.0 as well.

Use the commands in the opposite order. Cmd-S will save the file, then Cmd-W will close the window.

Well, you certainly could do that. But why? Cmd-S means Save in every piece of Mac software. And it has done so in every instance, for the last 32 years. And now suddenly since Photoshop 2017 it can arbitrarily mean Don't save.

It still means 'Save' on my Mac, but you have to use it BEFORE you use Cmd-W to close the window. If I hit Cmd-W first, so I get the 'Do you want to save this document?' dialog, hitting Cmd-S doesn't work (and I don't think it ever did). You have to hit ENTER in that dialog.

It did work that way before, and furthermore that dialog used to have the option to press Cmd-D for "Don't save" (at least before the CC-versions).
Still, to have Cmd-S mean "Don't save" anywhere is beyond dumb, and should be considered a bug, and not a user error.

Maybe it has something to do with your language settings. Like I said, Cmd-S is not "Don't save" on my system. On my system it does nothing when that dialog is up.
