I wanted to edit a texture.
I go to preferences file path image editor select the location of Photoshop.exe I go to the UV editor > Image > Edit externally
I have other software that can and do launch Photoshop.

I have tried to open files that Photoshop cannot open it still launches Photoshop, then shows a warning that it cannot open. I cannot even get that far with Blender.

How do I give rights / permission for Blender to open Photoshop?

    $\begingroup$ These are the correct steps, works as expected here. Have you tried with factory settings? Perhaps some other add-on or something else is causing a conflict? $\endgroup$ – Timaroberts Jan 28 '20 at 15:45
  • $\begingroup$ @Timaroberts I am using Blender 2.81a, Windows v1903 maybe mine is different than yours? $\endgroup$ – Eric Huelin Jan 28 '20 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ No, I'm running the same with Photoshop 2020. Any version of blender works as expected actually, whether installed 2.81a or other portable versions. $\endgroup$ – Timaroberts Jan 28 '20 at 16:25
  • $\begingroup$ @Timaroberts If I find Photoshop.exe manually it doesn't work. If I right click on the shortcut for Photoshop and copy Target location address. then it works. $\endgroup$ – Eric Huelin Jan 29 '20 at 20:53
  • $\begingroup$ @Timaroberts I wrote the address wrong or added the quotes from the target box or something. Now it works as it is suppose to. Thanks for your help. $\endgroup$ – Eric Huelin Jan 29 '20 at 20:59
