I use the Windows Store version which does not include exe files. The app is stored somewhere else.

I found the folder.
I can run "Adobe Photoshop Elements 2023.exe".

However, it does not even let me run "PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe" in admin mode

How about creating a desktop shortcut to the Editor exe file or pinning the Elements Editor program to the Task Bar?

Microsoft version applications have limited permissions. I suggest you contact Microsoft Support to help you get the proper file permissions set.
