Something has changed with how my computer interacts with Photoshop, and I don't know what.

I can no longer open Photoshop files by right clicking and using the "Open With" option. Photoshop does not show as an option, and when I click "Other Apps" it does not show there either.

Also, all of the icons that are Photoshop files have all now changed to PDF icons.

I am only able to open them by using Photoshop "File Open" to open them.

Any help would be appreciated -- thank you!

Hi

You didn't say if you are using Mac Finder or Windows File Explorer, but you should have an option to browse to your applications folder and select Photoshop, then select the choice to apply the change to all files with that extension. If you don't see it, share a screen shot of the dialog.
