    Why Does Adobe Bridge Take SO Long to Launch?
    Why does Adobe Bridge take SO long to launch? I have a new 2.3 GHz dual core Power Mac G5. On this machine, Photoshop CS2 takes 4 "bouncemarks" to launch. When I select File->Browse, which launches Adobe Bridge, it takes in excess of 8 bouncemarks to launch - MORE than Photoshop itself!

    What the heck is Bridge doing that takes THAT long to launch? Does anyone know? Any hints on how to minimize this?

    I don't know what it's doing but what ever it is it can't be sped up. It takes just as long with 5GB of memory.

    I may be wrong, however I think it is looking at everything on your hard drive and setting up previews for whatever file you have it set to open into...ie everything on your desktop if that is what it opens up to. I have 6.5 GB RAM on a powermac and it opens kind of slow.

    OK, good to know. I was starting to wonder if I had a bug in mine. I guess everyone has this issue. Bridge is a step down from CS's file browser frankly. It is sad when software is downgraded in a new release!

    I had a problem with CS1 where the first attempt to open or save in any of the Adobe applications would take ages. Turned out to be a corrupt font which was slowing my whole system down. Could this be why Bridge takes so long?

    Most Adobe applications take some time to load. Unfortunately, this is the way it has always been, regardless of what system you are running. Counting "bounces" really isn't a good way to gague startup time, nor is it very accurate. My PowerBook with 2 GB of RAM takes a different number of "bounces" each time I open something in the CS2 suite.
