    Hello all,

    For some reason, when I right click on an image (JPEG mostly) it no longer
    gives me the option to open with Photoshop (as it used to). I've tried to
    right click on the image and go to "Open With" but Photoshop isn't listed
    with those program choices. I've even gone to "Choose Program" and it's
    still not listed in those program choices. I've then gone to the next step
    of browsing to Photoshop on my hard drive (Program files-Photoshop) and
    clicking Photoshop from my program files, but nothing happens. After I click
    "Open" with "Photoshop" it just goes back to the list of programs that was
    originally listed in the "choose which program you want to open this file"

    To be able to use Photoshop I have to open Photoshop first and then choose
    open from Photoshop and browse to the image I want to work with. It works
    that way, but it's much easier to do it the way I used to able to.

    I have Photoshop 6 and XP Home as my operating system.

    Thanks for any help !!!

    Go to Start/Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs. See if Photoshop is
    listed. If it is, uninstall it and reinstall it. If it isn't, then
    install it over the top of the one that's already there.

    When you go to 'Choose Program' click on other then put in the path to
    photoshop.exe. This will add it
    to the list.

    Thanks for the help, but I mentioned in my original post I've done that. It
    doesn't add it to the list. I'm trying to find another way. If you have any
    other ideas I would be very appreciative.

    Apologies, I just reread your post. On initial reading I didn't read
    that bit properly. Do what Hecate said
    and check the installed programs list but first try deleting your
    preferences file, hopefully this may remedy
    the problem. Otherwise you may have to reinstall but also check you have
    turned your antivirus program
