Bridge 2020 update has no Photoshop in the tools bar

Latest Bridge 2020 update has no Photoshop in the tools bar. It's something I use all the time to batch from a folder and use an Action without having to open all the files. What's up with that Adobe???

Hello, did you also install Photoshop 2020?
Some fixed the issue by uninstalling both programs, restarting, then reinstalling Bridge, then Photoshop

Yes it's with 2020, it was released just a couple weeks ago. I keep CC2018 going as it's complete with almost everything working... 2019 was a dog! 
Anyway I'll try your suggestion tomorrow... time for sleep!

Hi Doreen,
This should be straightforward to sort out, and perhaps someone from the Bridge team could chip in?
Have you got Photoshop 2020 installed?
If I remember correctly there is a script in PS which has to match the one in Bridge and this was resolved in the final release versions... but as I say someone from Bridge /PS should sort this out.

Yes again this is with 2020... 2019 wasn't worth a darn... You'd think they could pull this version together, it was there in the first place by all means! Ughhhhhh  updates!
Anyway not sure what script you speak of, I assume that's with jargon they write behind the scenes... thanks

Peter, is is an issue that many encounter, I agree that there should be a thorough investigation into a possible solution different than reinstalling everything, but I'm not a programmer, so I am not sure if it would be possible...

Have you checked Preferences>Startup Scripts to be sure that the script for the Photoshop version you want is installed and enabled?

Some also fixed it by  recreating Bridge's preference, by holding CTRL (PC) or ALT(Mac) as Bridge starts

Hi Doreen,

As suggested by PECourtejoie 

Damaged preferences or workspaces can cause unexpected behaviour in Adobe Bridge.

Start Adobe Bridge and immediately press  Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS) until the Reset Settings dialog box appears.

Select all three options--Reset Preferences, Reset Standard Workspaces, and Purge Entire Thumbnail Cache--and then click OK.  Check now if the issue persists.

I already figured out a work around and got Photoshop back under the tools menu... Thanks however!

Well Doreen, could you maybe share how you did that? Since I just upgraded Bridge and am googling this exact thing.
