Can you please explain what you are referring to.  As far as I know, nothing has changed with the basic editing tools.  Are you talking about a Quick Edit?

Thanks for getting back, Greg.  What I'm trying t say is "when you use the move tool in background selection you use to be able in RESIZE the selection as well as move it.   I am no longer able to resize the selection....only move it.

The Move tool allows me to resize a selection in Elements 2022:

If it is not working for you, I suggest you reset the tool in the Tool Option panel:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the preferences file. Go to Edit>Preferences>General tab and click the Reset Preferences on next launch button.

 

And if all else fails, use Ctrl+T to resize.
