My old icons are gone on my psd files and such. Now they got a paint icon on them... How can I change this to photoshop cc so that I can actually see what kind of files they are...
Hi Marie and welcome to the forum. You have lost your file associations. If you are on Windows, right click any of those files and chose Open With > Chose Photoshop from the list, and click to check Always use this option (or whatever it says. If you are a Mac user, then do whatever the equivalent of the above is.
[EDIT] Have a look at this thread if you still have problems
Where did this person locate this? Where do I go?
I found a key:
This key was set to the path for Photoshop CS6 when it should have been set to Photoshop CC.
In other words, in my case, it was set to:
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe" "%1"
When I changed the CS6 to a CC, in other words, so the whole key reads:
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe" "%1"
