Yeah i know what you mean. i don't know what this Bridge is supposed to be doing but it's not doing it for mor. it's way to heavy!! the File Brawswer was much better if you ask be.

Off hand, did you happen to see if they made something similar for Illustrators .ai files?

MeliHitchcock, I downloaded that from another site (lost the link, sorry :() and it came with an identical registry editor for AI files. A quick Google search should allow you to find it.

That being said, I've been having issues with Photoshop and my Intuos3 tablet since I implemented this fix. I don't know if the problem is related to this; I've reset the preferences file, and I haven't had any problems since...but I haven't used Photoshop that much since. We'll have to see if it works properly now.

It's a pity we can't view previews of PSDs in Windows' slideshow mode. Anyone know of a fix for that? ;)

Thanks very much for this,

do you know if there is a fix for this that will work in 64bit Windows?

I have been searching around, found nothing yet. Or can I just edit the registry file to different paths?

Photoshop CS2 installs in a different location in 64bit windows, ie. "c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2", due to the fact that its a 32bit application.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
