Move Tool - Resizing Corners Disappeared

I use Photoshop Elements 11 fairly often. Today I've signed on and I can't adjust the size of a layer. I added an image as a layer, and it is too big. I want to reduce the size and keep the proportions. So I select the layer using the Move tool. The software allows me to move the entire image, but there are no resizing corners.  What happened, and how do I fix this?

Thanks!

Ginny

Preference settings control how Photoshop Elements displays images, cursors, and transparencies, saves files, uses plug‑ins and scratch disks, and so on.

Preference settings control how Photoshop Elements displays images, cursors, and transparencies, saves files, uses plug‑ins and scratch disks, and so on. If the application exhibits unexpected behavior, the preferences file may be damaged. You can restore all preferences to their defaults.

Note:

Deleting the preferences file is an action that cannot be undone.

Do one of the following:

  • Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Mac: Option+Command+Shift)  immediately after Photoshop Elements begins launching. Click Yes to  delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements settings file.
  • Go to Edit > Preferences (Mac: Photoshop Elements >  Preferences > General), click the Reset Preferences on next launch  button, and then click OK. When you restart Adobe Photoshop Elements,  all preferences are reset to default settings.

A new preferences file is created the next  time you start  Photoshop Elements.

Resetting the preferences did not resolve the issue for me. Is there a way to edit this preference directly? I can't find anywhere to turn the bounding box on in the preferences.

Please be more specific as to the issue that you have encountered.

This thread goes back to Jan, 2019. Which version of the software are you using? Windows or Mac?

You can reset the tool via the tool's option bar.

Resetting the preferences file is a more broad based maneuver.
