The Plug-ins preferences give you the ability to organize your plug-ins by saving them in one or more folders. These additional folders are typically used to hold third-party plug-ins. When selected, plug-ins contained within the folder will be available from Photoshop’s Filter menu. Organizing your plug-ins into folders helps keep your projects focused and reduces the clutter of plug-ins when you select them from the Filter menu.

- Click the Edit (Win) or Photoshop (Mac) menu, and then point to Preferences.
- Click Plug-Ins.
