I found the File Type Associations under preferences, however, it says "none" next to every single file type listed. It brings up a "browse" button if I hover over any of them, and that took me to my computer settings and I was able to insert "Adobe Photoshop CS6" next to "Photoshop Document". I think this may have solved the problem. I can see I have a lot to learn about certain processes (please excuse if I sound ignorant, I am not very computer savvy). Camera Raw does not come up the way I thought it would, but it does come up. I just have to hit the correct buttons.
No apologies necessary—we were all beginners once. It sounds like setting the file association answers your question. If you come up with others that don't pertain to this specific topic, feel free to ask them by starting a new thread.
Thanks for your help. You know, I've been doing photoshop for a long time,
but I have always struggled with how to relate to my computer. I'm old
school in my thinking in many ways. Beyond basic editing of photographs, I
have not gone much farther with my CS software. I will be sure to ask for
help when I need it. Thanks again.
