PS browser question

I have both PS 7 and PSE 2 and whenever I use the browser if I select more than one file to open the program will only open the first one I selected. Is there a simple setting I have missed? Also, if I don't close that file I cannot open any more files until I do close it. This doesn't seem right. What am I missing?

First of all, welcome to RP. I have a feeling you'll like it here. I guess I never tried to open more than one file at a time, and I don't know if you should be able to do that or not. But you certainly should be able to have more than one image open at a time. My guess would be that you might need to delete your preferences file. When you restart Photoshop, a new one will be created. A bad preference file gets the blame for some wierd behavior from Photoshop. Good luck.

Mimiya, I'd never used the File browser that way, but just to check how it would work, I selected two image files and both opened successfully, one after the other. So try restoring your preferences to their defaults. Here's Stephen Marsh's instructions for that process: restore preferences to defaults

How much memory does your computer have? It takes a good deal of memory to open two or more large files. What happens when you use the menu to open more than one file: (File-->Open ) -- any differences?

When I use file-open I can open several files at a time that's why this seemed so strange. I will try to reset the preferences.....
