I have have bought Photoshop Elements 16 and use it on my Windows 7 Professional SP1 PC
If I try to open a jpg file using a right click and "open with" and choose Photo Shop Elements , Photoshop Elements opens but it does not open the jog file itself.
I have seen some people asking this before but found no correct answers yet.
My PC works fine , the "open with" function also works fine with in every other program that I use (also in my opld PE program).
Can someone answer my question why PE does not work correct and what I should do to change PE accordingly.
Thanks in advance
Does it open the editor or the welcome screen?
In the open with options, do you see "Photoshop Elements 2018 Editor" and selecting that?
Ah great, I never realised or knew that I had to choose Photoshop Elements 2018 editor as standard program in the "open with" function. This feels like "or you put the plug in the socket" Lol, I'm a programmer.
Ps standard the "open with"with function only shows Photoshop Elements 2018 , not the editor
That is what I see under Windows 10.
When you go to "Open with", is there a choose another app option? If so did you check that list?
Another trick you could try is as follows:-
Got to the folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 2018
Right click on the file PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe and select copy
Right click somewhere within the folder and select copy - that should produce a second copy of the file
Rename the copy to PSE2018ED
Now see if that shows up under Open with
I have noticed that Windows sometimes gets confused and that trick seems to solve it.
Brian , at first the editor did not show in the list using the "open with" function. I now used the "select standard program" function in the "open with" popup panel and looked up PremiereElementsEditor.exe in my software folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 2018 and set that as standard.
This should work in many windows and pse versions I guess.
