Apparently out of the blue, when loading Photoshop CS5 Mini Bridge never starts, the window is completely blank. It has worked perfectly well for many years.
Bridge works okay and I have tried all the 'tricks' listed in the forum. In addition I've run system scans and repair services. I've re-install PS, done a restore, restored a backup image from a date I know to have been a good backup and the most drastic operation was to do a new clean install of windows and then copied by backup image onto it. I'm not prepared to do a new Windows install just to get Mini Bridge back as I will lose software that I can't now replace.
It may not be important but a few days before PS gave problems Thunderbird stopped passing e-mail addresses to the e-mail when you clicked reply to sender.
I seem to think that there is some background process deep in the OS that is not allowing communication between apps?
PS = CS5 Extended v12.0.4 x64
OS = Windows 10 Home v1703 build 15063.674
I've now noticed that special mouse button functions will not work in Bridge.
