Made some changes to my systen settings, to deactivate downloading photos every time I connect my iPhone.  After making several changes to my system settings, any psd thumbnail icons on my destop now show up with a "pencil" icon, rather than a pic of the file itself.  How do I change a setting back to see what the file icon actually looks like on my desktop?

Hi there,

That does not sound right, could you please try chaning the file assocation settings and make Photoshop the default app for opening psd files?

Thanks for your response.  I went thru the procedure that you listed for Windows.  Went to the default setting and found the .psd file extension.  Clicked on Photoshop CS6 and the desktop icons still look like pencils and when doble clicked - open in Autodesk Sketchbook.

 

I had never gotten into this setting dialog box earlier.  I must have checked/unchecked some other type of setting.  Any other suggestions?

 

TY in advance.

Steve
