Hello!

So whenever I try to open any psd file, something along the lines of "This directory name is invalid". As long as I do "open with" and then "photoshop" it works, but it bothersome having to do that every time I want to open a photosgop file. Thanks to anyone who can help me fix this

The only similar solution I found was resetting your prefs or trying this:
