I just installed Adobe Photoshop CS5. I finished the graphic I was working on and so, hit Ctrl + S. Nothing happened. Chose Save, as well as Save As from the File menu, and still nothing happened. Save for Web and Devices works, but I needed to save my file in .PSD format.
After some Google search I read that this happens if your screen resolution does not meet the requirement of Adobe Photoshop CS5. Click here to check system requirements.
I also read that it could be that something went wrong during the installation of this program.
Resizing my screen to 1024×768 is impossible with the device I am using. If we are on the same boat, a tip that I can share with you is close the tab of the graphic you are working on, and then choose YES when you are asked if you want to save the file. This is not a very convenient method, but it will save your file. I guess it’s a workaround that is best if you are about to save a new image.
It’s not the best solution if your problem is that Adobe Photoshop CS5 won’t let you save files. But the tip I gave you is a workaround. Perhaps the best solution is to install Adobe Photoshop CS5 on a computer that can display at least 1024 x 768 screen resolution?
I’m not sure if this problem is also encountered in other Adobe CS5 softwares. Only Photoshop is upgraded to CS5 in my computer.
