Can’t associate file types with Photoshop CC 2014?

Can’t open files with Photoshop CC 2014 because it doesn’t show as an application?

Photoshop CC 2014 not in context menu?

Well, me either. However, there is a very simple fix. It will require editing the registry (make a backup first).

Open Regedit and find the following key:

You will find this key was set to the path for a previous version of Photoshop when it should have been set to your new version.

For me, it was set to:
“C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe” “%1”

So, I changed the CC (64 Bit) to a CC 2014 by double clicking the Word (Default) in Regedit and updating the value data (you can physically go to the following path and see if Photoshop.exe is in there, if not, find it and use that path) .
“C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Photoshop.exe” “%1”

I can now associate file types to open with Photoshop, etc.

Thank you to middle.aged.hack over at for the great post (resulting in this post).
