Chapter 3. Hardware, System Setup, and P... > Setting Photoshop's Preferences

Setting Photoshop's Preferences

Much of how Photoshop looks and acts depends on a file called Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Prefs. This file contains such information as how you last arranged the palettes, the dimensions and color mode of the most recent new document, what style of cursors you prefer, and how you like to name files when saving.

The preferences are updated and the file rewritten every time you quit Photoshop. Because this file is rewritten so often, it is subject to corruption. Fixing problems that stem from a bad Prefs file is discussed later in this chapter in the section “Photoshop Quick Fix—Replacing the Preferences.”
