THIS IS FOR WINDOWS USERS

This is for people who don't want to see any old auto creations for any reason on that pretty start screen.

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Elements Organizer\18.0\CAHeadless\Creations\
That's the location for auto creations for PSE 2020.  PSE 2021 would be 19, isntead of 18.0.

The names are radomly generated:  '7a8433fe-1476-4bd4-b1d6-03655626af55" for example. 

Just go in the creations folder and delete them

I find it easier to click the View All button on the Welcome screen, then click the trash icon on all the Auto Creations I don't want to keep, but thanks for pointing out where they are in the filesystem on Windows 🙂

For some, for whatever reason,  that isn't an option--- we turn off auto creations and yet some still appear.   One gentleman in another thread had 1 autocreation he could not delete, using the standard method you described.   Of all the autocretions I had seen, for me, none of them was anything I would wanna keep, or share with anyone.    There are tons of free tools that can make way better slideshows, with thosands of percent more control.
