Windows 7: "Open with" Not Working

"Open with" Not Working

I installed Photoshop and when I try to tell Windows to open a PNG file with Photoshop by right clickingthe PNG file and selecting 'Open With' then I browse for Photoshop. But no matter how many times I select Photoshop.exe, it does not add Photoshop to the list nor is there an option to choose Photoshop. It always opens with the lowest program in the list of programs already displayed in the Open With window.

How do I fix this?

Have you tried changing settings by using Default Programs in Control Panel. Click on Default Programs in Control Panel & then click on each of the Menu items & make any changes that you wish. Also be sure to scan any open screen for other settings & follow through on those as well. Don't forget to click the OK button at the bottom of the screen.
