Hi - I just bought PSE 11 and have installed it on my computer. I am trying to right click on a file and use the "Open With" option to open the jpg in the program. However, the program opens but not the photo. I can open files within the program by going to "File - Open" just fine. The program that is on the "Open With" list isn't the right one (it's Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 rather than PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe). However, when I try to browse to and select the correct file it doesn't show up when I get back to the "Open With" screen. I've tried uninstall and reinstall. I've also tried using the program on another user and it works fine there but I don't want to switch all of my info to another user just to open photos. Photos open just fine in PSE 9 with the "Open With" method. Any help would be *greatly* appreciated. Thanks.

Hi - Thank you for your reply. That is what I try to do, however, once I click Open, PhotoshopElementsEditor doesn't show up and it just tries to open it with the Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. Any other ideas? Thanks.
Can you please explain the following file in a little detail. What happens when you try browsing for PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe
However, when I try to browse to and select the correct file it doesn't show up when I get back to the "Open With" screen.
Also as you mentioned, you have PSE11 and PSE9 installed. Do you have any other version of PSE installed on your system. Also which version that you installed most recently?
Hi - Thank you for your reply Barbara B. When I go to the Open With dialogue box and choose browse I do pick the one that you mentioned. However, once I click on this file and click open, the file doesn't show up in the Open With dialogue box. It's not even there. The only thing there is Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 despite the fact that I clicked on the PhotoshopElementsEditor. I can't figure out why. The strange thing is it works on another user's screen on the same computer. I don't want to migrate all my stuff to a new user - too much work. Any ideas?
Thanks for your reply dominic.rj23. See my previous post as an explination of what happens when I browse for the file you mentioned. I don't have any other versions of PSE installed. Actually, version 9 is the most recently installed as I reinstalled it as a temporary way around this issue (the files open fine in PSE 9). Any other ideas? Thanks.
I have multiple PSE version installed on my system and whenever I choose PSE11 exe, the open with menu instead shows me older PSE version. I thus believe it is something to do with the registry keys.
Can you try uninstalling PSE11 and then installing it again so that your registeries point to your PSE11 application
Thanks everyone for helping. I found a utility that added the program to the Open with menu and it works great now. The page is http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/126340-open-add-program.html Choose method 2
