PHOTOSHOP: Repeat Last file type saved as an option

I don't know if this has been brought up before since I'm new to this site.

I have been working in Photoshop which seems like forever, and one thing I have always wished for is the ability to have an option to repeat the last known file type saved (tif, jpg, psd, etc.) so I don't have to go through the hassle of doing the drop down menu and finding my file type I want to save. And/Or an option to be able to "hide" the file types I don't use, like we can do with the drop down menus and save my workspace.

I know I can do batch processing or options from Bridge, but I work in Prepress/Retouching at the moment and I retouch images one at a time. Saving in batch is not an option.

I know as soon as I post this I'll find out this has been a hidden gem somewhere I never knew about.

This has been what I've been searching for too! I'll be following this topic and hope for an update soon. I'm surprised this hasn't been addressed already.

The majority of files I save on a daily basis are .png and I must wade through twenty two total file types. How can we remove those unneeded file types?

I've been using photoshop for decades now and this has annoyed me to the point that I use different tools.

There is simply no fast iteration possible when for example saving a tif includes:

File > Save As... > (Clicking on your destination file does not detect it's type - i feel like I am in the 90ies) > Choose format > Setting format options (Layers are on by default) > Save > Answer replacement warning dialog, click ok on the tiff options dialog.

These are 9 clicks to save a tif. Seriously?
