Adobe's 3rd level of support asked me to post this answer here, since none of the 3 levels could figure it out, and I finally did. I couldn't set the default to Photoshop for jpgs all the usual routes. 

I right-clicked on a file, selected Properties, and there near the top was : "Opens with: Paint"  I changed it to Photoshop and it worked for all other jpgs, too. 

Hope this is helpful to someone else.
