The file type recognition is controlled by windows and windows by default doesn't know what a .CPP is or many other types for that matter. More distinctly it doesn't know what program to associate to the file type. That is all done via the File Type Association widget in control panel in windows. The save file dialog is a common control dialog from windows and it is it that is directing the prompt.

Usually any good installer for a C++ program makes the changes for association to the file type for you. So either you have a lazy installer for a C++ program or it made the association and you have since broken it.

Whatever the case stop complaining about it and go fix it in the File Type Association widget in the windows control panel. If you need assistance an internet search on "File type association on Windows" should give you a multitude of links to work with. It's a bit like complaining when you click on a .BMP file it doesn't open it in the right editor, yeah so go fix it.

As an extra helpful tip I can tell you that on the file type association it is useful to select plain text filter onto the .CPP file type. That allows windows searches to go inside your .CPP files on a text search. It is sometimes useful if you have a lot of code directories (like I do) to find a specific block of code if you know something unique about it. You can do a computer wide search for the text string in a .CPP file and it has saved me hours of searching.
