P: Disable 'Browse in Bridge' unless the user has it installed

Illustrator, in my opinion, handles this properly. It greys they menu item out. It's frustrating to accidently click 'Open in Bridge', which then automatically opens up CC and installs the app.

Indeed, all Adobe app's should behave the same. I don't use Illustrator but what you describes sounds logical and PS should do the same. I've upvoted.

I agree and have upvoted.

 

What you can do is disable the menu item and remove the keyboard shortcut, which is still active even if the menu item is hidden:

Apparently this option isn't even available for the Mac M1 chip versions of Photoshop. If one wanted this option a custom script is required:

 

 
The menu item should just be named "Open Bridge"... As it does not actually automatically "browse" to a previously saved, open/active document (which the script above does do).

I agree that having all the CC apps treat the function the same would be nice, but it's now a yeaer later and Adobe hasn't adopted this idea. OTOH, it isn't at all difficult to edit the PS menus to hide "Browse in Bridge" and edit the keyboard shortcuts to disable its shortcut. It's a one-time operation, and I just did it this morning after my Abyssinian cat walked on my keyboard and installed Bridge for me.

InDesign doesn't handle it at all.

I hoped the suggestion from Stephen_A_Marsh would work for me. InDesign won't remove items in a Default Set. Every time I hold down Option+Command, and accidentally hit "o", I'll be closing Bridge manually.
