When opening a .mwb from "Data Modeling..Open Existing .ERR file" (WB startup screen) a Windows Explorer dialog opens with .mwb preconfigured if the filter setting.  However the filter has no effect. All sorts of files are displayed. Additionally the string ".mwb" is truncated.

How to repeat:
image coming ..

Suggested fix:
I think I have never seen a Windows Explorer dialog looking exactly like this before .. looks like some cross-platform library/wrapper has a problem here.

Files with .url extension in the folder (my Windows desktop) listed regardless of .mwb filter

we are not able to repeat this.

Do you maybe have another hint for us?

I am sorry.  Files with .txt and .jpg extension are not listed.  Those links to webpages (displayed with Opera icon on my system) also appear in Windows Explorer with native Windows programs.  So not a bug.
