I'm hoping the answer is obvious and I'll apologize in advance for my "newbie" question. I have been using Elements 9 for a decade almost on my old iMac and just recently purchased a new iMac. Purchased Photoshop Elements 2021 after playing with trial version for a few days. Amazing the added features compared to old #9. Anyhow, I have two applications: Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021 and Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor on my dock but in my one of the Apps is in the support folder. When launched they appear to be the same? What am I missing. Thanks.Screen Shot 2020-11-29 at 2.32.03 PM.png

Best to post in the Photoshop Elements forum, this is the Photoshop forum.

I know nothing about Macs and the file/folder structure. 

In Windows, the main desktop icon used to open Photoshop Elements will open the Home screen from which you can open the Editor or Organizer (or Premiere Elements if installed):

The Editor can also be opened directly by clicking on a shortcut icon (which has to be created by the user) or via some other OS methods. 

 

I assume something similar is available on Macs.

A shortcut from the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021 opens the Welcome Screen whereas a shortcut from the Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor opens the Editor directly bypassing the Welcome Screen and the Creative Cloud Desktop application.
