Bridge: Open With Mac and Windows difference

I have been using Adobe Bridge on a Windows system. Recently used a Mac and found a difference in operation of Open With
On my PC when I right click a JPEG or TIFF I only get the option to Open With Adobe Photoshop or just one other choice that I added in Preferences.On the Mac Open With gives me a whole list of applications that can open my image file. If I use Windows Explorer and right click Open With I get all the other options as well, for example, Photoshop, Paint, FastRaw, Windows Photo Viewer, Photos etc. I would like to have these other options presented in Bridge in WIndows but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do this. My friend has even suggested that this is a bug in Windows version of Bridge? Is there any way that I can make Bridge in Windows perform the same?

No, it's one of the many thousands of bugs in Windows.

You've just experienced one of the differences between a gaming system and a REAL operating system.

Is this really the standard, a childish answer, to expect within this community? 

Perhaps just an off day or just a demonstration of complete lack of knowledge of operating systems and applications

I'm an MCSE and an RHCE -- i.e., a sysadmin certified in both Windows and Linux.

Any more questions?

Frankly I could not care less what you claim to have Windows, Linux, OS or any other qualification that you care to add.

If you are not able to answer the question as posed please pass on this and let someone with knowledge answer
