When I try to open an office 2007 document, the default application is set to Thunderbird and when I try to edit it in the Edit>Preverences>File Type Associations, it isn't listed at all. My OS default applicaions for Office 2007 files are all correct, it's just Bridge that I have the problem. Any ideas?
The file properties are correctn and the files open in the oppropriate program when opened via double clicking in Explorer, it's only in Bridge that I have the problem. If I right click the file in Bridge, I have the choice of the correct application and then underneath, Thunderbird (default). So the option is there, it just won't let me make it the default. As seen below...
Rather than begin another thread about essentially the same subject... this is for CS3 Bridge
Since I finally uninstalled previous CS version, now when I open up Bridge and right-click PSD image to say, open in AI, my options are only all browsers (?!) and Photoshop which is the program assoc. with PSD that I set in File Type Assoc in Bridge. Used to be able to view most Adobe programs when right-clicked before I uninstalled old CS.
It's annoying and I'm not sure how to restore/fix.
Uninstalling an old version, will believe it or not, cause the file associations to revert to the uninstalled version. Not an easy fix.
It appears you either need to start over or delve into the registry. See this link. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/423584?tstart=0
