Photoshop Wont Start
« on: 2021-03-16 17:05:13 »
I customized my menu bar to invoke Photoshop, but it will not do it.

[C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Photoshop.exe]


I CAN invoke Photoshop Elements via an added menu item,  but not Photoshop. I can invoke PS by double clicking its .exe, but can't seem to get it to come up from Thumbs Plus.

Ideas.

Some ideas...

Have you tried this also after a reboot? Just to exclude the possibility that you may have a stuck/crashed instance of PS still running in the background, which might keep another session from being launched.

When you go to Options | Customize | Tab:Programs and you Edit your entry for PS, and you use the [...] button to the right of its command line to lookup and select its executable, does that fix the issue?

If not, what I'd probably try next is to create a batch file that launches PS and then run that batch file instead.

Looks like batch will have to be made.. SMH... I am on a Win10 Home and will try on my Win 10 pro when it comes in. My recollection is that it used to work on my "other computer" Win 10 Pro
