Windows 7: Default file open program. Cannot select Photoshop CS6

Default file open program. Cannot select Photoshop CS6

If I open Photoshop CS6 and select a Nikon NEF file using File|Open, the file opens in Photoshop the way it should. If I select a NEF file on the desktop and select Open|With, the file selection window opens as it should. If I browse to the CS6 icon, nothing happens. What can I do? All updates are installed.

Hi brooksro and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this within ( Start - All Programs - Photoshop?) Or is it a icon on the desktop?

I start PS from a shortcut on the taskbar. That all works fine. Its clicking on a nef file where I cannot change the file association to PS using conventional Win 7 methods. It simply will not recognize CS6 as the prog I want to use to open nef files.

When you click open with
If you then click browse, you should be able to search the programs list and select cs6 and set as default.

I guess you didn't understand. I know what you are saying. Selecting the PS icon and clicking on open, does nothing. It's like I clicked on open space.

I do understand. But did you try going into your C: drive? C:\program files\adobe\photoshop cs6?
