I had read this thread already. There is nothing in it that applies to my problem. Thanks. This problem is still open.

Yes Benji, that is the method I am using. It simply does not work. If I select PS from the directory and OPEN, nothing happens. It does not get added to the list.

Sorry brooksro, I got stuck on opening and lost sight of the fact that you have that ability. Most of the threads I find mention opening through bridge. The last post on this thread mentions a method to create a default association, although I can't speak to it's success. I'd back up the registry just in case, but since it involves creating a new entry, deleting the entry if it doesn't work should quickly return it to how it was before.

Registry - Backup and Restore

Obviously change as necessary for your version.

Thanks A Guy. That just puts CS6 on the context menu, not in the Open With list.

This problem has been solved by de-activating CS6, uninstalling, and re-installing.
