I have used CS5 for years. I just recently set up a new computer and am now using Adobe's CC. When I tried to open old images from my other computer I could only open Photoshop images, not my jpg or png. I looked for something In Preferences that would allow this but didn't find anything. Can anyone help me with this issue?

I think you will have to be more specific here...what operating system are you using, are there any error messages that show up, what exactly happens?

If it's a matter of "I double clicked on the file and it opened in a preview instead of photoshop.", then here you go:
