I am sure you are overloaded with grips about the new Start Screen. My particular problem is that Photoshop does not appear to have focus when first open with Window 7, at least. This means that shortcuts, like Ctrl o don't do anything, and nor can you run an Action after opening Photoshop. Clicking anywhere on the Photoshop window (not just the Start Screen) fixes this.

I have further investigated this, and discussed it with other users in this thread

It now appears that Photoshop does have focus on start-up, although you can barely tell because the Window icons in the top right corner are _very_ similar with and without focus.

It is not a huge deal, because I only need to click once with the mouse on the window after which the keyboard works, but if it is not a huge amount of work, it would be nice if the keyboard worked without having to click on the interface.

Perhaps someone from Adobe could take a quick look at the thread linked to above?

Thanks guys
