I was changing the color settings in my Photoshop CS6 the other day; now I get the Windows color mixer (below) instead of the Adobe color mixer.

this is the windows color picker/mixer and is not what I want..

... so my dilemma is I cannot remember exactly everything I did. I was working off of multiple sites to help make my colors the same as the print as on the screen. But this Windows color mixer is very impractical; it doesn't show the color number or anything.

You can change that setting by pressing the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+k that will bring the "Preferences":

Change Color Mixer

Just select the Color Picker named "Adobe".
