Exporting file creates 1 folder, 3 files

Up until now, when I exported a file, I had no problems. I usually let it export in the (MS Word) format of either .rtf or .docx and I got a single file delivered to my chosen folder.

Now suddenly, with the same commands, I’m getting a folder within a folder and the file buried in the interior folder.
Really annoying.

How do I fix this?

Thanks for any help in advance.

I think I figured this out, although it’s still a mystery why Scrivener is creating these folders. I posted my solution in the post titled “Exporting text yields folders” by Marylinks.
