How do I copy a plug-in file into the file path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-ins\File Formats?" My question is how to get to the path? I am running Windows 7 Professional.

The folder "Program Files (x86)" only exists if you are working on a 64-bit version of Windows. On 32-bit Windows you will only have "Program Files".

Is the problem what Brett suggests? (you're looking for a folder that only exists on a 64bit OS) Does that answer your question?

Thank you both. I just needed to learn how to access the file path. I am new to Windows and am still learning its topography.
