OK, I'm running a crippled CS6 under Catalina, its been working fine for months using Terminal to start it, but all of a sudden when I try to open a PSD file from my desktop, I get a giant blue folder with an arrow pointing down, and nothing else. I can access every folder on my mac but the desktop... recents, applications, documents, and downloads, and can access any new or ancient PSD files on my USB-connected HDD. And I can see all the files on the desktop in Finder. Can't quite figure out what I might've clicked on or off to shut down Photoshop access to the desktop. Anyone have a clue?
I am having the very same issue, has anyone helped you? I am running Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4. I am so frustrated because I have searched but not found any answers!
Photoshop CS6 is 32-bit and is not compatible with Catalina. You can either upgrade your software or rollback your operating system.
Hello, did you tro to change the views (the icons next to the arrows on the top left?)
Go to the Menu bar on top of your screen - Click on the apple logo - System preferences - Security and Privacy - Under the Privacy panel - (Scroll down to Files and Folders) - On the right hand panel Click select on Desktop under Adobe Photoshop! That should do it!
Thanks, your tip was right on the money! 😉
Thank you! Such a simple fix when some "experts" are suggesting changing back the OS!
I had the same problem. This is the answer. Thank you.
Files and Folders don't appear when I select Privacy. I am running HighSierra ... not able to go any higher on this Mac.
