PHOTOSHOP CS6 Drop Down Menus Won't Auto-Open When Hovering with Mouse (Have to Click Every Time)

Ahoy.

I am using Adobe Photoshop CS 6. For the drop down menus (File, Edit, Image... etc...) I have to click on them every single time before they actually drop down. I want to change it so I click once (on File for example) and then when I hover the mouse over Image or Edit they automatically drop down.

Can't seem to find how, thanks in advance.

Those are normal OS menus, and yes the normal operation of the OS does require you to click the menu to open it. You may be able to change the OS settings to allow open on hover, but I'm not sure where you would change that OS behavior.

What OS version are you using?

On Max OSX 10.8.5 it seems to work as the original poster expects (also with the Arrow keys).

Windows 8 (I know, it's horrible).

I'm only seeing this in PS CS6, in my old PS 7 it works fine.
