When your Preferences are set to use auto recovery when you edit a Document and make changes after the time set in your preferences if the document is still open with unsaved changes Photoshop Auto recover feature creates a file "Filename Recover.PSB" in your recovery Folder When you save your document changes the feature will delete this PSB file. So when you close down and open Photoshop the recovery folder is empty. Should Photoshop Crash there may be some PSB files in the recover folder. When you open Photoshop, Photoshop will open these PSB files so you can recover some of your unsaved changes. You should use these PSB documents to save your unsaved changes to your files "Filename.ext" this will remove the PSB document as an open document you will now be editing document filename.ext. If you do not want to recover you work you can simply close the PSB documents. Photoshop should close out the PSD document and delete the recovery PSB files. If this Photoshop close does not remove the PSB document and delete its backing PSB files the next time you open Photoshop, Photoshop will open any Un deleted PSB file in the recovery folder. Close Photoshop and delete the files in your recover folder.
thank you for your answer, however the recovery documents are not the problem.
the problem is:
- the application can open many time - not in just one window
- the PNG format files I created from PSD document, opens as PSD
- Photoshop application do not recognize content of the layers when opening PSD files in double click or right click open, and open the last document that was opened
- the formats of the files are confused
basically the whole application files thread is not working correctly
any ideas why that can happen?
On Windows only one instance of Photoshop can run a a time. If you just start Photoshop. Photoshop's Window should open and there should be no open document unless there has been a failure and there are recovery PSB files. In that case when you start Photoshop, Photoshop should open all the recovery PSB files and you you see open recovery document open in Photoshop. To me what looks strange to me is you screen capture look like two instances of Photoshop are running on you window. That should not be possible on windows. You edit in tabs I edit in floating windows so our screen captures will look different. your. Looks strange to me:
Here I have 5 image open in CC 2017 I try it open an image in CC 2014 the version of Photoshop I use. You can see what happens it open in the currently running CC 2017 instead. I also can not start second copy of CC 2017. In the first capture where I hover over Photoshop's icon on the task bar there is one Photoshop UI window and 5 floating image windows. Yous showed two Photoshop both having open tabbed images.
Try Resetting you preferences. If you can still open more than one instance of Photoshop Uninstall Photoshop download ant use Adobe Cleaner then install Photoshop test if you can open two copies of Photoshop at the same time you should not be able too. Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, my Photoshop has a bug, what should I do?
And why this happens?
Have you tried what I wrote? "Try Resetting you preferences. If you can still open more than one instance of Photoshop Uninstall Photoshop download and use Adobe Cleaner to wipeout all traces of Photoshop then install Photoshop test if you can open two copies of Photoshop at the same time you should not be able too. Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems"
I'LL try that, if I'll have to uninstall Photoshop will my brushes and
color library will be saved?
And do I have to backup all my files?
