In Bridge, when I double click on a image, it opens the image in Windows Photo Viewer rather than in Photoshop CS6 Editor. I have checked the preferences but all that it offers me is to open in Camera RAW. How do I change this?
Windows 7 64-bit
That depends on the source of the problem. If the registry database is corrupt, reinstalling won't help.
Which file extension are you having problems with? Does this affect all image extensions that Photoshop should load, or just a few?
If you select "open in Photoshop" in bridge instead of double clicking, does that work?
In another thread about the same (or similar) problem I found the solution that just worked for me: CCleaner.
I ran its registry cleaner function on file extensions, activex and class issues, applications, applications paths, installer, and obsolete software - somewhere in the list of errors it finds with these criteria was the solution, but I don't know which one, because I just used "fix all".
