Updated  Photshop to 2021 (22.3.1)

When I click on a file to open it, windows defaults to PS 2020 (21.2.7)

 

I've right clicked and gone down the "open with" dialog and directed windows to the 2021 folder, but it still default to the older version.

 

Same thing happening with ID (posting this it that forum too.).

 

Thoughts?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that. When you go to Open With and select Photoshop 2021, does the file opens in the 2021 version at that time? If yes, then you need to set Photoshop as the default app to open all jpeg files. Please check this link for steps: https://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/how-to-change-the-default-program-to-open-a-file-with/

Let us know how it goes.
Regards,
Sahil

Thank you Sahil,

In the "open with dialog Photoshop 2021 is not and option (see attached screen grab).

 

And when I use the 'look for another ap on this PC' dialog, and go to "program files/adobe/adobe photoshop 2021/photoshop.exe" it still does not list 2021 as an option.

 

Also in the files properties " it lists "opens with" as photoshop 2020 and does not have 2021 as an option.

This is even for files that were created in 2021.

 

Herer are the options for "opens with" :

All my versions of PS are avalible EXCEPT the current version.

 

This is also the behavior for InDesign (which are the only adobe programs I currently use).

Yes.

 

This has been the case since I updated last month.

I've been busy and haven't had time to try and fix it until now.

 

Just getting tired of having to open files from inside PS and ID!
