At 85 years old I don't like changes. When Adobe recently updated the version I have been using, it made it unusable for me. I want the old version 5 back.

Adobe didn't update your version 5. There hasn't been an update in over 20 years.

yes I am using 1998 version with windows 10 the update was about a week ago. How do I reset the preferences? What changed was when you want to add layers to an image such as enhancement of a color they made it so small it is difficult to make the changes. Thank you   Gene urroughs
