There's no dependency on PowerPoint for that dialog/feature, and I have not observed that behavior on multiple installations of Windows 10.

Curious issue though. Please comment if you see it elsewhere or if you get blocked by similar issues. Sounds like you are able to move past it in this case.

It might be due to a problem w/ the specific version of the .NET framework that you currently have installed for your installation of Windows 10. If that is the case, it could resolve itself after future Windows updates, if/when the .NET framework is updated on your machine.

Worst case, as a work-around for this specific dialog, you could manually enter the directory path (or copy/paste) into the text box, and avoid the Browse button altogether, but it sounds like you are able to use the button still, despite the label issue.

I will check out to see if .net is up to date and report back.

the system requirements said .net4 was required. I d/l the offline installer but it said 4 or a higher version was already installed. so I tried 4.5.3 but got the same message.
the latest version I could find was 4.6.2 and it installed.

But the no text on the browse button still exist. I have not seen this in other applications.

I've so far been unable to reproduce the issue on several Windows 10 systems.
Good that the button still works-- but annoying that the text is missing or washed out.
Will post an update if I discover the root cause.

Thanks

I have a brand new installation of Win 10 going. I will certainly try it on there very soon and will post back here my findings.
