In past versions, customers could install Extension Plug-ins on macOS and registry keys on Windows to manage specialized behaviors in Photoshop such as overscrolling, VM buffering management, and disabling scratch disk compression.
In current versions of Photoshop, these behaviors are enabled through Photoshop's preferences or a "PSUserConfig.txt" file you place in your Photoshop Settings folder.
For more information, see Enable optional extensions.
To access the Texturizer filter, choose Filter > Filter Gallery. Then select the Texture folder and click Texturizer. Select the new presets from the Texture pop-up menu.

Download the Shortcuts package:
After you download the Shortcuts package file above, double-click it to decompress it. If asked, extract all the files.
To install and use these keyboard shortcuts, double-click any of the included KYS files. Photoshop comes to the foreground, and prompts you to save any unsaved shortcuts you have. Adobe recommends that you name the resulting keyboard layouts by language, such as "French default" or "Japanese," although that is ultimately a matter of personal choice.
You can save these shortcuts wherever you want. But consider choosing the Photoshop folder, so you can remember where they are.
For more information, see Customize keyboard shortcuts.
Photoshop sample files are examples of files that can be created in Photoshop. They can help you learn Photoshop, by showing you the way documents can be created.
