I'm trying to find a solution to use Windows' native file dialog for saving/opening files. It seems like there's ways to do it, but I've never used plugins or libraries or whatever, so I'm a little lost on those fronts. This in particular seems like it could be what I'm looking for, but I don't know what to do with it. In any case, it looks like there's no built-in solution, so that seem like my best option right now. Any help is appreciated.

I asked for a way to use the native file dialog - the one that shows up when choosing files in software that isn't made in Godot. And I only need a solution for windows.

Godot doesn't support displaying a native file dialog, so you have to call a third-party script that displays a native file dialog using OS.execute(). This may be feasible via a PowerShell script.
