When I am uploading files to a chat or channel, Teams always picks the same folder to start the search. It is not a standard folder like Documents or MyPC, but a normal project folder from where I once uploaded some files. Now it is fixed to that folder and I have to click out of it to find other files, wasting time.

I have checked all options in File Explorer possible and there is no reason why Teams has fixated on that folder as the start-up of the file search, and I cannot find anyone that knows what to do. Can someone help?
