Does Bridge open when you choose File > Browse in Bridge?
Does it open if you launch Bridge from the Start menu?
If yes, then the problem is with your shortcut. You might create a new one and delete the old one.
If no, then check to see if Bridge is installed.
Does any of this help?
Sorry -- I'm a nerd trying to follow this website. Just saw this . . . but, unfortunately none of your advice helps, answers no, no, and yes, Bridge is installed. Nancy Belcher
