While working with my Easy Ease, the SHIFT+F9 just no longer works or hasn't since installation. SHIFT+CTRL+F9, or F9 work as intended.
(I checked the pref text file for my keyboard short cuts and SHIFT+F9 is assigned correctly)
Now when I create a preset then wish to view or browse my presets I click Animation > Browse Preset, and nothing happens.
(Made a shortcut to my preset folder)

In CC you have to install Bridge separately. That will fix the browse presets problem.
The answer to your other question is down about 3 or 4 topics in this forum.
You should get a message telling you to install Bridge when you try to use Bridge and it's not installed. Did you not get that message?
