Help! My .psd files do not have photoshop icons, but generic icons from windows.

Apr 23, 2013 6:32 AM

Now that I've installed my new windows CS6, all my .psd files have the 'generic icons' windows give to files they don't recognize.  Everything else has normal icons (i.e. Illustrator files) but the Photoshop files are blank.  This is true whether I'm on any type of viewer format, i.e. details, thumbnails,  Can someone help me?

    Hi Eelswood,


    Please try changing the file association for .psd files.

    Right click on the file > Select 'Open with' > 'Choose default pogram' and then select 'Photoshop' in the list of programs.

    Make sure 'Always use the selelcted pogram to open this kind of file' is checked at the bottom of the window.
