Ever since I installed photoshop cs3 and cs4 all my shortcut icons changed to the photoshop icon and they all open photoshop and not their program.
Also, the executable icons (not the shortcuts) open photoshop.

If further info is needed please ask.

It sounds to me like photoshop has taken over all file association. Which is a little wierd. :huh: You will have to find the file the shorcut ponits to, the original, right click the file and select properties, you will see type of file and opens with. Use the change button to browse to the proper program.

Or go to Control Panel/Default Programs and select Associate a file type .....
