JPEG files don't open from Bridge, or open in an application other than Photoshop


When you double-click JPEG files in Adobe Bridge, nothing happens or the files open with an application other than Photoshop.


Solution 1: In Bridge, make Photoshop the default application for opening JPEG files.

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Bridge > Preferences (Mac OS).
  2. Select File Type Associations from the menu on the left.
  3. Scroll to the JPEG file type and choose Photoshop from the pop-up menu.

  4. If Photoshop is not in the pop-up menu, choose Browse, navigate to the Photoshop application, and then click Open.

    Note: This solution sets up Photoshop to open JPEG files in Adobe Bridge. It does not set up Photoshop to open up JPEG files system-wide.
