Hi, I'm new to this community and for years only used an ancient PSE 4 and then a free, unsupported CS 2 because I didn't do that much editing and they served my purpose, but I recently bought PSE 2020 (for both photos and videos) and I'm having a bit of a struggle due to how very different they are to what I've been accustomed to, which is understandable I suppose.
When putting a selection into another photo I used to simply open both photo's, make the selection in one of them and drag and drop it into the other one with the move tool. It was so easy, but now when I open the second image, the first one disappears and I can't seem toget both pictures up or go backwards.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could describe the easiest way to perform this task on PSE 2020? And are there even various ways to do it? Thank you in advance.

To use the method that you know, you need to enable the Allow Floating Documents in Expert Mode box in Edit>Preferences>General (Ctrl+K). Alternatively, you can copy your selection in one image, using the Edit menu (or Ctrl+C), and then paste it into the other image (Ctrl+V).
Thank you Greg, that prompt response was better than I could have hoped for because I didn't think for one minute I had the option of carrying on doing it the way I always have, which is preferrable for me, although I noted also the other way you espoused as well so I now have 2 options. Anyway, thanks again ;o)
