I am just starting using Photoshop CS6 and purchased Classroom In A Book. From the first page, the program doesn't do what I'm told it's supposed to do. For example, to reset the default settings, it says to open the program and then immediately hold down Ctrl,Alt & Shift. When I do that, nothing happens.

That is how you reset Photoshop's preferences.

On Windows, you have to do that fairly quickly as you launch the program.
MacOS changes to command-option-shift, and allows a little more time.

How quickly? At the same time that I am opening photoshop? I don't think I can move that quickly! Thanks though!

Yes, right after you click the application to launch it.
(but it does usually require 2 hands)
