    The code that creates and manages the saving dialog is handled by Windows only. Dev-C++ cannot affect it in any way. All Dev-C++ and any other Windows program is allowed to do is ask Windows to create a save dialog and set the initial directory.

    In other words, this is a Windows related problem.

    A fix would be to use F5 inside that dialog to refresh the current folder.
