Second, in the File Type Association for .eps files and .ai files, Bridge preferences showed "Explorer setting," meaning whatever setting Microsoft Explorer shows for that type of file. I looked at my Explorer settings and I had already indicated the preference for .eps and .ai files to be opened by Adobe Illustrator. Apparently, the Bridge update wasn't / isn't allowing adequate communication with Explorer. I had to go back to Bridge preferences and indicate Adobe Illustrator 2022 to get Bridge to open either .eps or .ai files in Illustrator.
