This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Not default program for PSD files (macOS)

I recently updated Photoshop CC to the most current version (19.1.3) and I also have Photoshop CS6 installed, and now Finder has reverted to CS6 as the default application for opening any photoshop file. In the past, I have fixed this by right clicking on a file, going to "get info", selecting the right application under the "open with" section  and clicking the "change all" button. Now, though, when I click "change all", it asks are you sure you want to do this, and I click continue, but it just resets the form, putting photoshop CS6 back to the default. I believe this is a bug on Adobe's end since I haven't recently updated my Mac OSX and this problem started when I updated from Photoshop CC18 to CC19. 

Has anyone found a fix that does not involve uninstalling CS6?

I have Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC (19.1.3) installed on my Macs, and I do not see this.

I also have the same problem; although it's intermittent.  I also have the issue where right-clicking & "opening with" - photoshop does not show up as a "recommended application"  and I need to select "all applications" before I can even select photoshop to open .jpeg files.  Very Annoying.
