"Open in Camera Raw" is Disabled - How to Enable?

I recently installed Creative Cloud on my new computer and installed Photoshop and Bridge. I used to be able to right click a photo (on every other version of Bridge I've ever used) and open it in Camera Raw to in order to convert HEIC images to JPEG. However, that option is not available (for any file, much less HEIC). I'm working in Windows 10 with the HEIC codecs installed (I paid the stupid $1 to greedy Microsoft), and the latest versions of Photoshop and Bridge. Things I've tried include clearing the cache, opening Photoshop to encourage Camera Raw to show up in Bridge, and ending all active sessions using from my Adobe account settings online, all of which are solutions that are mentioned in other threads. I've also tried using the building image converter in Bridge, but all I get is a really low resolution of the original image, similar to all my thumbnails which are extremely low resolution.


How do I enable Camera Raw? Thanks in advance for your help.
