I cannot open an image directly into photoshop CC 2015 by right clicking. PS CC 2015 does not show as a default program in the list. I've gone into browse and tried to add it by going to Adobe, Adobe photoshop 2015, choosing the program file, but nothing. Bridge shows up as does lightroom 2014 (refusing at this point to download the new one until there is a fix for this. Finally today it shows up as a program in the control panel default programs list, so it should show up as a program set to open jpg or whatever files but PSCC2015 is not available. I have jpg set to open with photo gallery but I should be able to right click and get PSCC2015. I cannot set.png file association to open with PSCC 2015 but it will open with Bridge. PSCC2015 is in the default list but not when choosing default programs. HELP! About ready to toss it and go back to 2014!
A clue may be that each time I launch photoshop or bridge it asks if I want to allow this program to make a change on my hard drive!
