Save As dialog treats the folder Open button as if it were the file Save button



    1. In Windows 10 selecting a folder in the Save As dialog correctly changes the Save button to an Open button.

    2. Selecting the Open button should then open the selected folder and change the Open button back to a Save button but it does not. Instead selecting the Open button causes Notepad++ to attempt to save the file in the current folder.

    3. Double-clicking the selected folder does correctly open the selected folder.

    4. All other applications respond correctly to the Open button in the Save As dialog

    Thank you for all your work. I hope the behaviour in step 2. will be fixed at some stage.
