Windows installed an update, and when I opened PS CS6, my colour picker was gone. Instead I have tiny sliding bars which are of no use to me at all.
I've tried resetting preferences, holding Ctrl+Alt+Shift didn't do anything, and I've tried for a few minutes to get the dialogue box up. I manually searched my hard drive for a preference file, deleted it, and that didn't do anything either. I went into preferences and the Adobe colour picker is selected. I get it when I click on the colour boxes in the lower left corner, but it's no longer showing up as an option on my task bar like it was yesterday. I have no option to change the currently sliders to anything but different colour settings.
None of the solutions I've read have helped so far.
Which version of windows are you using?
Could you post a screenshot?
