 I would like to have my Photoshop Elements 14 icon on my desktop again - it opened directly to the program. I don't know why it disappeared. I have a Desktop shortcut but it doesn't open to the Elements screen.

Your question is not entirely clear.  If you want to always open the Editor when you click on the existing desktop icon, do the following:

  1.   On the Welcome Screen that probably appears, click on the cogwheel icon
  2. From the dropdown menu, choose Photo Editor.
  3. Click Done.

Now, when you click the desktop icon, the Editor will always open.

 

Let us know if I have misunderstood your question.

same as what I did. Open file explorer and navigate to where PSE is installed, scroll down and look for PSE Editor application, and copy that to desktop.
