Adobe Acrobat Pro DC v 2019.021.20061

All of a sudden right click an image & the only option to edit it is Microsoft Paint. I have the full Adobe Creative Cloud Suite & it used to default to Photoshop.

I have edited the preferences & set it to Photoshop but it still isn't working.

Help please.

Acrobat DC ignores the settings in the preferences.

So that's it? All of a sudden I cannot use Acrobat in the most efficient manner? It was always Photoshop before. There must be a way to set it back to what it was. It is a lot more time consuming to use OPen with & have to select the exe file every single time.

Why does this happen? If the ability to select a content editing program is in the preferences, why does it not 'stick'. Is this a bug - as it happened with Acrobat 2020 but eventually 'learned' to stick after much wtfs
