Cannot get PS CC 2015 to open images with right click or associate as default with .png files.

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!

I'm having the same problem, this used to be set up on my machine and worked with all upgrades since CS6. Now I cannot set PS to open a PNG since upgrading to PS CC 2015.

To reproduce on a PC:
I right click and select 'Choose Default Program.
PS is no longer available from 'Recommended' or 'Other Programs'.
Click the browse button..
Navagate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.
Select Photoshop.exe
No Photoshop icon populates anywhere in the window...?

Help !!! Is this a bug or what?

I cannot believe that worked but it did. Unfortunately that means is will always default to PS CC 2015 rather than giving me a choice, but at least now PS CC 2015 shows in the "open with" panel on the right click menu. Thank you so much. Maybe I cna also pin photo gallery so I have a choice. We'll see! YEA. Right now they're all opening in Bridge which ok but just one more step I don't need. THANK you!
