Image dialog box opens on fresh start of Photoshop CC by double-clicking on any image file.

Ok, here is one for the record books!

I have a problem when PS CC does an initial start-up from opening any file type; the image size dialog box opens up and asks if I want to re-size the image to 100px X 100px @72 dpi.

And it only does it on the first start-up by opening an image file; reboot of the system or a fresh start after shutting PS down, the image size box will still open. However, once PS CC is open and running, subsequent opening of any file and the image size dialogue box will not open! Also, if I just start up PS by .exe command and then open up an image (double-click or file>open) the image dialog box does not open.

PROBLEM BASED ON SITUATION:
- PS is not running / double-click image / PS opens up images / Image Dialog box opens
- PS is running / double-click or file>open / PS opens up images / Image Dialog box does not open
- PS is not running / double-click on ps.exe command / PS is running / double-click or file>open / PS opens up images / Image Dialog box does not open

I have had many Adobe CC programs running and only just PS running. It does not seem to matter what is going on with the system or programs. I have done research on it, but all I have been able to find is how to use it, not problems with it.

The image dialog box issue does not cause any system or program problems, but is an annoyance I would like to take care of!

Thanks,

JOE

WORKING PLATFORM

ADOBE CC:
Nearly all Adobe CC programs are installed.

SYSTEM:
3.2 ghz 6-core AMD chip
16gb ram
6 tbs of HD space

11,000 fonts in the library, but only 1,350 installed.
However, I have tried testing with just the basic systems fonts. PS image box still opens up on any fresh start-up.

Hello, have you set up an action in File>script event manager?
Did you try to reset your preferences? CTRL+ALT+Shift as you click its icon to start it up?

And see, I knew it was going to be something easy!

There must have been something left over or inserted on one of the times that I was running some action scripts, batch processing or image processor scripts. How is got there is beyond me.

I actually consider myself well versed in PS, but I can say that is the first time in the script event manager!

Thanks for the tip.
