In Windows 7 Explorer
Right Mouse Click on image file
Select "Open with"
Select "Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018"
NO IMAGE appears within Elements
Loading an image file requires opening via the Elements File Menu, or dragging a file from Explorer, into the Elements window.
"Open with" used to work very well for PG, PDF, DNG, etc.
No idea what made it malfunction.
Thanks for your assistance.Demian
Try resetting the preferences file. Go to Edit>Preferences>General tab and click the Reset Preferences on next launch button.
Thanks for respnding to my request.
Why do you think resetting the Preferences would make any difference?
I looks like none of the customizable settings actualy relate to the "Open With" setting.
In case I missed a setting that did relate, it would make sense only to reset that particular item, not all preferences.
What do you think?
Thanks for your help.
