Time stamp modification when there are no changes

Continuing the discussion from Audacity changes "Date modified":

I always used date stamps to sync files across multiple devices but that doesn’t work anymore with this idiotic changing the file modification date stamp even if there are no changes to the file - simply opening a file, not modifying the content in any way should not change the modification date. I would much prefer the older file structure in that case. I have been using Audacity for many years. Even when you specifically say “Don’t save” it still updates the time stamp. Phil
