I extracted a .csh file to the Custom Shapes folder in Adobe. Can you kindly tell me how to access them from the Photoshop menu? Thanks in advance.

From About.com:

"Place the *.csh files into:
Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop X\Presets\Custom Shapes where X is the version number for your version of Photoshop.

To load a file, go to the Styles palette, then click the small arrow in the top right corner and choose one of the layer style collections from the menu."
