    Hi @Jeff Stiegler

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Could you tell me how you saved the file? Using shortcut: Ctrl+S

    Please click on File menu and check that the Ctrl+S shortcut is assigned to the File.SaveSelectedItems, not File.SaveSelectedItemsAs. You can go to Tools > Options > Environment > Keyboard > Reset it.

    User's image

    Or you can try to reset the environment settings by going to Tools > Import and Export settings > Reset all settings

    Click Tools > Options.

    Expand Projects and Solutions and click Locations.

    The Projects location field defines the default location for storing new projects.

    You can change this path if you are using a different working folder.
