Bridge: Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor... disappeared

I installed PS 2017 and Bridge 2017.  Image Processor (and the whole Photoshop tab in Tools) did not appear in Bridge.  Reinstalled PS 2017.  No luck.  Reinstalled Bridge 2017.  Image Processor came back.  BUT THE NEXT DAY when I turned on computer, the Photoshop tab in Tools had again disappeared.  I followed the video instructions and manually removed the preference files.  No luck.  I uninstalled and reinstalled Bridge.  No luck.  Did the same with Photoshop.  No luck.  Very frustrating.

After that I uninstalled, then reinstalled both and said "no don't keep my apps" (or whatever it say).  No luck. More time wasted.

Did another re-install, and problem was solved this time, and fix even persisted when boot computer.  Fingers crossed.

Perhaps you could tell us your problem because "this as an answer for this" is a tiny bit vague...

I had the same problem - The problem was 2018 bridge and 2017 photoshop version and visa versa..  Both updated to the same version, no trouble.

Same issue with me - For some odd reason, I had Bridge 2018 and Bridge 2019 installed, with 2018 having the shortcut on the start window.  Noticed in CC panel that there was a drop down next to bridge, which showed the two apps - although it didn't state 2018 and 2019. Just deleting old version and re-pinning app to start window.

Problem is Bridge 2019 is has poor thumbnail logic wasting a lot of screen space with padding. Its also very glitchy redrawing when you move in the window sides. And Bridge 2018 doesn't play well with PS2019. Basically its broken an excellent and fast workflow I've had for many years.
