    I am new to Won 8 and am frustrated beyond belief. MS - Stop changing things and let us alone (XP and Win 7 were great)!!

    I have successfully mapped two NAS drives, but I cannot perform a :"save as" from screen shot or "Save web page" because the pane that pops up refuses to show the mapped drives.

    What am I missing here? I have both opened and saved to both NAS drives but cannot access them from the "SAVE AS" and the "SAVE WEB PAGE" panels.

    Are you by chance running the program as Administrator? Remember mapped drives happen per-user profile space... perhaps that is what is causing the issue? If you run a cmd prompt as administrator, then map the drive there, and launch program from that command prompt does it then allow you to save?

    I can't say what your problem is caused by but can assure you that drive mapping works the same in Win 8 & 8.1 as it did in Win 7 and XP. I haven't had any issues. I know this doesn't help me but I don't think it's a Win 8 issue or anything to do with "MS - Stop changing things and let us alone (XP and Win 7 were great)!!".
