Windows 7: How to add Photoshop 32bit to "Open With" in 64bit OS?

How to add Photoshop 32bit to "Open With" in 64bit OS?

Hi guys, noob here. I just got a new computer with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, and previously was using XP. In XP I was able to add Photoshop to the "Open with" menu upon right-clicking any .jpg file, but I'm having trouble doing this in Win7. It will only allow me to add the 64bit version, which is not working on my system for some reason (the 32bit version works fine.)

Is there a way to get the 32 bit version to add to the menu? Right now, even if I select the Photoshop 32bit version, it still adds the 64bit version to the menu for some reason.

Hi there,

You may have already done this, but I can't quite tell from your description.

1. Right-click on a file of the type for which you want to set Photoshop as the default.
2. Go to "Open with...", click "Choose default program...", and then click "Browse."
3. Go to C:\Program Files (x86) and follow the folder path to reach Photoshop.
4. Select the Photoshop executable (.exe), click "Open", make sure the box labeled "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" is checked, then click "OK".

Let me know if that solves your problem.

Cheers,

Walker

Thanks for the reply! What I was trying to do was a bit different though. I still wanted the Windows picture viewer to be the default program, but I wanted PS to just be an option under the "Open with" menu. I did end up finding the solution here: https://www.sevenforums.com/software/...2bit-fine.html

remove the "open" and "merge" entries from context menu?
safe to assume its impossible to remove the "open" and the "merge" entries from the context menu? I figure if i want to open or merge them i would simply double click. Clutter and redundency in this vein dont suit me :P
