I use Windows 10 64bit and Photoshop CC 2015 with all latest updates installed. I have an issue when i follow these steps:

If i use Export As or Quick Export and save on Desktop folder then all subfolders on Desktop open in a new window.

Thank you.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Quick export in Photoshop CC breaks folders on Windows 10 pro..

The same issue was reported here: and still has no reply so I'm making another report about it.

If Quick export or Export as is used it messes up the subfolders which causes them to open in a new window everytime you open them.

Jeffrey - that is not a fix, that is a temporary band-aid and you know it. Especially if you have to do it every time you export something out of Photoshop.

My Photoshop also opens folders and as a bonus it will randomly keep opening folders that previous projects were saved in throughout the day. Then it tells me it can't find it and makes my windows explorer icon blink all day in my system tray.

You guys were doing so well - what happened with this new update???
