how to open Photoshop CS3 without Bridge?

    On my Mac, whenever I launch Photoshop CS3, it also launches Bridge. It
    does not do that on my wife's Mac, so there must be some option to
    control this that I have not found.

    Any hints on how to stop this behavior?

    Why? All you need to do is type Command-Q, right? Big deal.

    ; )

    bridge'

    The Big Deal is not the quitting, it is the very long launch time. It
    adds something like 30-45 seconds to the time it takes me to launch
    Photoshop. Since I almost never use Bridge (I use Lightroom for my
    browsing), I would like to avoid that extra launch time.

    Duh... I KNOW I searched those preference panels for something like
    that and didn't find it. You just snuck that in on me tonight, didn't
    you?

    Yep. That was what I wanted -- thanks!

    Sorry, I was just giving you a little bit of your own medicine. ; )

    Yes, and I gave the Why. The iPod OP never said why it was a Big Deal to
    unplug the iPod. I am still wondering why...

    We may never know that, but I can certainly think of several *potential*
    reasons.
