The last update of Photoshop CC to 22.3 has killed my option to set the default app for JPG to Photoshop. I'm on Windows 10 (20H2). All the other picture files work, but not JPEG or JPG. I've tried changing the default app every way (Open with, Default apps, Properties) but nothing changes. JPGs only open with Photos unless I choose Open with or open from within Photoshop. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem or have a fix?

As my original post says, I have tried that, along with many other ways, but those aren't working for this issue. I do understand that this may be a glitch between Windows 10 and Adobe, but it coincidentally happened after an Adobe CC update.

It's probably caused by uninstalling a previous Photoshop version after the new one was installed. Unfortunately, this is the sequence the CC app does it. This can cause registry keys to become orphaned.

 

Uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop should fix it. In the future, always follow version order, last in, first out etc.
