How do I change a specific file type association in Bridge CS5, namely the .psd file type? I had installed Photoshop CS6, but am unable to use it due to extreme slowness (another problem, not for this question). I have reverted to using Photoshop CS5 and Bridge CS5.
Now when I double-click on a .psd file in Bridge CS5 to open it (or right-click on the .psd file) , the file opens up in the glacially slow CS6. I went to edt>preferences>file type associations to change the association to Photoshop CS5, but .psd is not listed as a file type (.jpg and .dng and a host of other file types are listed). How can I change the association if I cannot find the file type? (BTW: I have changed the file type association in Windows Explorer; I am running Windows XP.) I know I can open PS CS5 manually and scroll to the image I want to open but, to my mind, that defeats one of the main purposes of Bridge.
Any advice you can offer would be gratefully received.

This is mac screenshot, but should be in same place.
Win 7 works very goo on my home computer, much better security. One problem myslef inlcuded have had is files permissisons, especially on external drives, and you have to dig to china in the menus to fix it, or else you can't save over the same file name. So if you plan on upgrading do it on a day you can troublshoot to fix that annoyance, though at this point might be good to wait for win8.
I'm not sure why you don't see 'Photoshop Document (.psd, .psb...)' in the File Type Associations section. That's where you change the default opening application. I just changed mine from CS6 to CS5, but on a Win Vista system.
Have you changed many of the other formats? If not, can you try clicking the Reset to Default Associations button, then OK the preferences dialog. Bring the preferences dialog back up, and see if 'Photoshop Document (.psd, .psb...)' shows up.
