    When I right-click on a photo or something, then go down to "Open With" to choose which app to open it with, my CS4 has made an obscenely long title somehow taking up the whole desktop. As you can see, it looks like nonsense after it says CS4. All I need it to say at the most is Adobe CS4, or just be like CS2.
    Anyone know how to change this mess?
    Thanks!

    I suggest going to the location of the .app and renaming it.

    I fixed it.

    This is what I did: I went into Finder>Apps> Adobe CS4 (folder)> Right-Click on CS4.app> Show Package Contents> Contents> Open info.plist

    Then 6-lines down it stated what was in the "open with" string, so I removed it, restarted, and Voilá! Like a BOSS!

    Thanks though. It's all nice and clean now.

    Don't forget what it was named originally, in case you have problems with your next CS4 update.

    Oh S. I didn't think about that. It's too late now though! :eek:

    Hopefully if there is any problem I can just delete the plist.info file and it will automatically make a new one upon restart.
