    At college, the windows xp file browser window shows the psd's, but on my desktop, it just shows a psd logo. So in order to see what it is, I have to open each one. So my question is how do I fix that? Is it the service pack 2 or is it some utility to install? Its not stable online so hopefully its not sp2 so I dont have to download a huge file.

    The best way to fix it is to buy a Mac :D

    True, then you wouldn't have to worry about using 90% of available software, what a relief :)

    Scott pokes the Mac User and runs....

    Yeah, and 190% of that 90% of the software we can't use isn't worth using anyway. :D

    Gives Scott a short blast from the water cannon... [feets don't fail me now!!!] :lol:

    just to make sure, you are in thumbnail view instead of tile or icon view for your desktop?

    I use Soft Windows on my Mac. Makes the Mac pretend it's a PC and can run all PC software (It even runs 200% slower and crashes - just like a real PC!) ;-)

    I dont like windows, but adobe cant be ran on linux and im getting to old *25* to learn a new software, plus im afraid of it messing up the pc. :0) I would download the version that boots from a cd but its like 700mb's and im on dial up. :0)

    Mac's use to have an edge over pc's in performance but I think that gap isnt there anymore. They are more stable, but you pay 2X or so for that stability, and my windows rarely crashes.

    And yup, its in thumbnail view.

    Well it sounds like Windows does not know what to opent he PSd files with. Explorer->Tools->Option ->File Types.

    If not just reinstall PS. Sounds like something got corrupted

    When I hit enter on the file, it opens in adobe ps. I dont really want to reinstall ps and have to go through the process of registering it again with the super really really really long id numbers and then to go through all the preferences and set it up the way I like, and then to redo the actions to install them. :0)
