I just recently updated to bridge 2017. What has happened to the "Load Files into Photoshop Layers?" Has it been moved or removed? It is litterly the only reason I use bridge and it is causing a lot of problems with my work flow!

File/Scripts/Load Files Into Stack/ does the same thing. Don't check Automatically Align Source Images.

File> Scripts> Load Files into Stack is in Photoshop itself. In Bridge you're looking for Tools> Photoshop> Load Files Into Photoshop Layers. You get the same results.

Yes, but this post is about "Tools> Photoshop> Load Files Into Photoshop Layers" being gone in Bridge, not Photoshop. You forgot to mention that you were referring to the Photoshop menu, not the Bridge menu. Anyway, Johan's advice was the answer; i.e. go to the Bridge Preferences - Startup Scripts and look if the Photoshop scripts are checked. I did that and now it is back. I guess Adobe, for some unknown reason, decided to have those boxes unchecked in the update.

I'm on a Mac running Yosemite, but Load Files is still in my Bridge. You have checked in Startup Scripts in Bridge the right version of Photoshop is enabled? Perhaps deleting Prefs might restore the full complement of scripts. You may  need to uninstall/reinstall PS so Bridge knows about it. It used to be we could simply open Photoshop for Bridge to recognize a fellow traveler, but now they've separated them, I doubt that works. I haven't had to try it.

The script in PS is fine, but it's not as convenient as selecting the files in Bridge, so if you can get the help you need to get it back in Bridge. . .

It is still in Bridge. Do the following: go to the Bridge Preferences - Startup Scripts and look if the Photoshop scripts are checked.
