Photo Editor: How to increase the memory allocation for Photoshop CS2?

How do I increase the memory allocation for PS CS2. I know Ive seen it before, but now wish to give it heaps more ram, but forgot, can someone please help?


I'm not familiar with Photoshop, but normally you do not allocate memory for applications. They usually just ask for more memory and the Operating System gives it to them.

Where did you get the idea that you needed to allocate memory?

You can allocate memory and scratch disc space. Launch PhotoShop CS2 and go to Edit, preferences, Memory and Image Cache. in the lower part of the window it will show you available memory and how much is used by Photoshop. Click on the arrow and adjust the slider to the amount you want to use.

Ms. Photo Editor was lost

Has anyone ever managed completely to lose Photo Editor, as I have just done?

Can anyone please tell me where it lives in the system and, more importantly, what I can do to get it back. My wife will kill me, if she finds out that she cannot view her photos (though I realise that I can get at them, using my expanded Send To)

Photo Editor has always worked perfectly and was doing so, when I last used it 2 weeks ago. I cannot imagine what I could have done to lose it.

Clicking the Desktop icon produces this error message:-

"C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Microsoft Photo Editor.Ink

The Managed Software Installer failed to install the program

associated with this file. Please contact your system administrator"

Photo Editor has vanished from the Start > Programs list and it is neither in the Add/Remove Programs nor in any other list that I can find.

Using Start > Find produces just "C\WINDOWS\Desktop" and "C\WINDOWS\Send To". Clicking on either of these produces just the error message mentioned above.

Re-installing Win 98 has not helped.
