reset default preferences w/ CS5 on iMac?

Dec 8, 2012 11:44 AM

Happy Holidays to all.  I'm using Adobe's Classroom in a Book.  On page 12, the prompter to reset default preferences doesn't pop up, so is there another way to reset?  Thankye.

    Click on the Photoshop icon to  launch it, and then quickly press down and hold the cmd-opt-shift keys all at once until the reset dialog box appears. A dialog will appear "delete the Adobe Photoshop Preferences File?" Press Yes if that's what you want and then Photoshop will continue to open. It may take a few tries but it should work.

    You can manually delete the prefs file. It should be in Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings.


    The file in that folder is called:Adobe Photoshop 5 Prefs.psp".


    Detailed info here.

    Preferernces files don't "open".


    The suggestion was to delete the preferences files.
