After installing a new version of Photoshop CC it loses file associations. Different problems for different people.

Windows would not associate or allow me to associate .jpg files with Photoshop CC.

The fix for me was in

Edit registry as follows:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.jp g\OpenWithProgids

Adding a binary value with "Photoshop.Image.20" as the name and leaving zero length data. I had to do this for each extension that didn't work.

It's a shame that something so simple wastes countless hours of time and is a colossal disservice to customers, like man years. I respect your IP, please respect our time.
