Sometimes just turning your computer all the way off... getting a cup of coffee, and turning it back on does wonders.

It did not close properly the last time you used it. Some or all was left in memory - rebooting your computer cleaned it out. As Glenn said turning off your computer does wonders.

Many people, me included, have problems when attempting to use Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor. It's not us, it's just lousy software that Adobe should have corrected long ago. I for one will never purchase an Adobe product again, and will look for a replacement for Photoshop Elements.

I have the same problem. It is not convenient to keep having to reboot the computer. What's more trying to find a technician on Adobe site does not seem to be possible.The automated consultant does not comprehend the problem and there doesn't seem to be any real people there. I was only using the trial version to assess and it did not convince me. Has the making of a very good editing program but support for a problem is nonexistent. Therefore at this stage, I will not be purchasing the full program. There are many others on the market that have SUPPORT

I have the same problem. It simply will not open, no matter what I do. I have tried to reinstall, reboot and so on.

It has been fine for about 11 months, but now ... nothing. 

I am thinking of just dumping the whole thing and see if I can find something more reliable.

I'm having the same issue.  I restarted my mac, I restarted the program, I restarted my mac etc nothing will make Editor open.  I was looking to upgrade to 2022 but will not be spending that money as I have zero confidence it will work, thanks for nothing Adobe.

I have the latest version. But this is such a stupid question, since so many people have expressed the same problem. The software is flawed.

ctrl + alt + del to bring up task manager, expand options to show all background processes and just end all the elements ones running. Not ideal but works and saves a reboot

"Saves a reboot"? What are you saving? Why are so many folks so obsessed with NOT rebooting a computer?

Using Task Manager to kill a process is usually quicker than rebooting.

I am also having the same issue.  I don't have time to try to figure out the mechanics of BIOs and new users, etc.  You have lost another customer.
