Steps to reproduce

  1. create on Desktop folder with name JSONS e.g.
  2. upload to any file sharing service (onedrive etc., from where you can save as your file to Desktop) the file with name JSONS.rar
  3. try to save as uploaded file with original name to your Desktop

result - saveAs dialog will open JSONS folder to save inside it… Seems saveAs dialog cuts out extension part of filename and opens folder if folder has same name
and you can’t “save as” JSONS.rar to folder Desktop if there is folder with name JSONS

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. We are considering a solution for a future build.

      This can be worked around by specifying the file extension or choosing "Save".

      Best Wishes,

      The MS Edge Team
