When I was reading a pdf on internet explorer with adobe reader, I wanted to save the pdf but I was rushing and accidentally click something and it change my save as dialog interface.

 

Here is an example of how the adobe reader would look on internet explorer:

And this is how my save as dialog look before I accidentally pressed something:

How it looks like when I screwed up

All the pictures are taken from the internet but this should explain the situation I have created. Does anyone know how to switch it back? Thank you

If what you have posted is what you're seeing then it looks like an accidental "wrong item click"

 

The first dialog is clearly a "Save as" dialog while the second is clearly an "Open" dialog.  Are you saying that when you are certain that you have activated "Save as" that you are being presented with an Open dialog?

 

Also, you should check if the same behavior exhibits itself if you open a PDF file in Reader outside the web browser and attempt to do a "Save as."

Sorry, that image should have also been a Save As dialog box and not a Open dialog box

Well, based on what you've now mentioned, I expect that you somehow at one point accidentally activated the "Save as type" box, setting it to text (.txt), and that's being remembered.  Those choices often are remembered between sessions for specific settings.

 

Just change it back to PDF and all should be right with the world again.

@britechguy: Maybe I'm getting something wrong, but for me it seems that the problem reported here is this XP looking style of "Save as" dialog.

@Richard ken: Am I right? If so, please check - as @britechguy asked - if this affects also "Save as" invoked from desktop Adobe Reader - but also other applications (e.g. notepad).
