Hello,

 

I have just downloaded and installed Elements 2022, along with Elements 2022 Organizer. A little bit prematurely, I imported a lot (multiple dozen) of folders into it. I now realise that I had intended to import folders and their images from a different disc. 

 

I couldn't see a method of undoing my import, or a means of selecting multiple folder for deletion, so now I am stuck with many items that I hadn't fully prepared to import. Is there any way to 'start again', as I don't really want to individually remove all the folders I don't want?

 

As I did my imports only yesterday, is it better to delete the entire application? I would appreciate anyone's feedback, thanks!

You can create a new catalog. Go to File>Manage Catalogs.  Once you create a new catalog, you can delete the original one (although it doesn't take up much storage space.).  Uninstalling the program does not remove the catalog. 

And just so we are clear, are you a new user of Elements?  If you have a catalog from a prior version, you can convert it to Elements 2022.
