On the weekend I upgraded my MacBook Pro to macOS Mojave. Things are mostly ok but I have some apps that no longer work. The one I’m most stressed about is Adobe Photoshop CS5. When I try to run it it refuses to open.
I’ve tried resetting NVRAM and running Disk Utility, but this didn’t resolve the issue.
Before I take the plunge to revert back to macOS High Sierra I thought I’d try my luck here.
Do any of you folks have any other suggestions for me to try first?
The first thing I would try is changing the security and privacy settings in System Preferences. You can do this as follows:
- Go to Apple > System Preferences…
- Click on Security & Privacy
- Select the Privacy tab at top right
- In the lefthand pane select the Accessibility option
- At bottom left of the window make sure the padlock is unlocked (if not, select it and enter your password)
- In the list of apps on the right-hand side, make sure Photoshop and any of the other apps you’re having problems with are ticked
- OPTIONAL: If any apps you’re having problems with are not listed, click on the + button under the list and navigate to the apps to select and add them to your list. Once done, then repeat Step 6
- Make sure you lock the padlock again that you unlocked at Step 5
- Quit and restart any apps you’ve just allowed to control your Mac (i.e. if they were already open)
Now try running Photoshop etc again to see if they work.
