Bridge & Photoshop CS5, opening Photoshop files from Bridge

Time:October 11

If I open Bridge in Photoshop CS5, & double click on a jpeg thumbnail in Bridge, it will not automatically open the file in Photoshop. Why?
How can I change my settings so that the files selected in Bridge will automatically open in Photoshop when double clicked?

Hi, when you go to Bridge/Preferences/file Type Associations, & you see the box with a list of file formats in bold on the left, you will see a program name or the word 'None' next to each one, & an arrow to click on, to the right of each one.
If you have 'None' written there, it means it hasn't got a program allocated to it, or it may have some other program written there instead.
What you need is to see Adobe Photoshop CS5 in the list on the right, next to every file format that you use.
You could try clicking on the Reset to Default button at the bottom of the box to see if it brings up Adobe Photoshop CS5 automatically.
If it doesn't, or brings up other programs instead, click on each of the arrows on the right inside the box, then hit 'Browse'', then look on your hard disk for the program file for CS5, & select the actual application set up file 'Set-up.exe''.
That's what worked for me.
Good luck!
