Photoshop CC 2017: How do I JPEG's with Camera Raw? The RAW editor is much easier to edit in.

I've noticed that if I open a RAW file, Photoshop CC 2017 will open it in a very simple to use editor.  If I open a JPEG, it goes straight into Photoshop, which is much more frustrating to use for editing a photo quickly.  Is there some way to edit JPEGS the same was as RAW files?

On Windows go to Edit > Preferences > Camera Raw...
On Mac go to the Photoshop menu > Preferences > Camera Raw...

In the JPEG and TIFF handling section, set JPEG to : "Automatically open all supported JPEGs"

All JPEGs will open with Camera Raw rather than opening directly in Photoshop.
