Welcome to Camera Raw screen blocks PS, can't close it, PS won't close from taskbar

I am on windows 10 17" laptop, using CC most recent

I was opening my recent files which included 2 camera raw images. This stupid welcome screen to camera raw pops of and will not close and I cannot see around it. Nothing is active on the Welcome to Camera Raw screen.

And I cannot minimize the welcome screen or access PS or anything that lies underneath it. There may be some sort of notification that I have to close but if so, it is underneath and I cannot get to it.

Here is an Screen shot.

Can someone tell me how to bypass the welcome screen for camera raw? I see the Camera Raw app underneath this welcome screen the correct size but cannot get this welcome screen to close

for some reason or another my jpeg will not insert.

Thank you,

I believe you only get that welcome screen the first time you use Adobe Camer Raw or install ACR. It goes away when you click on its lets get started button never to be seen again.

Try resetting Camera Raw's preferences:

This did not work for me. With the old version the "okay" button displayed at the bottom of the screen. The new version does not display this button or if it does the screen is too large to display on my laptop. I tried tinkering with the settings and dragging the corners to make the screen smaller, but it did not help. I seem to be forever stuck in RAW. Not liking this!!!

And Ive had the same frustrating problem through a few Adobe updates, always hoping problem was fixed.  Currently on Win 10 and PS 22.3.0.  There is no way to MOVE the window or is there no close buttons either nor could you kill from taskbar.  Only way then was to kill the whole PS process in task manager.  Found this post and list that had one thing that worked for me use shift-esc to close the window.  Its a shame that Adobe can't seem to fix this problem as it makes the software flow clumsy.

Ctrl + Alt + Direction arrow rotates the screen to reveal the "Let's go" option. Click the option and rotate the screen back to your normal orientation
