When saving a new file or using "Save as", list all the file names in the folder that is selected, not just files that Excel knows.
I often create related files for the same topic. For example, I may create a word document and then want to create a related Excel file that contains related data, and I want to give both the same name. I would like to see this capability in all the Office products. These products used to work this way.
If you select “All files .” in the “File Type” drop down when saving a file, then all files will be shown.
