I've just installed Photoshop v24.2 for Windows (x64) and found this 500MB file in the program directory?
What is it?
It wasn't in the previous versions?
The file is - Desktop.map
We're happy to announce the release of Photoshop 24.2.1. This update includes the fix for this issue.
To update Photoshop to 24.2.1, click "Update" in the Creative Cloud desktop app next to Photoshop. More detailed instructions for updating
Let us know if the update resolves the problem for those affected, and share your feedback.
Something that didn't come from Adobe.
Maybe @CoryShubert can explain what the file is used for
@Lumigraphics it shows up on my 2 PC's
and VirusTotal shows it as safe
Ah I was looking in the Windows Program Files. Open it with Notepad++, its just text. Looks like a list of memory locations.
Thank you for the post @FrankWhittle. Due to an installation error we installed an extra 500MB file along with Photoshop called “desktop.map”. This file is not necessary for Photoshop to run, feel free to remove/delete this file.
There is no indication on the page of this issue or any other fixes
