I'm using PSE 2022 and I can't find a way to keep my Photo Bin always showing at the bottom of the screen. In much earlier versions, I could do this and it's frustrating not being able to see everything at a glance instead of the additional step of clicking to open it and show the files. I just want it to be static and not disappear. It's so frustrating and I've had no luck changing a setting to make it always active. Any help would be appreciated.
There is nothing you can do about it. You really shouldn't let 1 simple mouse click frustrate you- especially since there is nothing you can do with later versions to change it.
You can't do it (keep the photobin open / automatically open) in newer versions. What you talk about is just how the earlier versions were-- the photo bin was the only thing located at the bottom.
Below is a screenshot from pse10. The photobin is the only thing on the bottom in that version.
Today's versions-- basically anything from pse14 forward the bottom is shared with other things.
Oh, the way it was... I realize it's one click, and if I didn't learn PSE with the older versions I wouldn't know the difference. I did like the visual of it always showing everything at a glance, but I don't want to purchase old versions so I'll deal with it. I thought it was probably hopeless, thanks for taking the time to confirm what I knew but hoped was wrong.
But wait, I do have a question. I have an iMac, running Ventura on it, could I purchase PSE13 and load it on my Mac and keep this 2022 version on my computer as well. That way for simple edits I could use the 13 and then use the 2022 for more complex edits. I just don't know if that older version would be compatible with Ventura.
MAC killed off support for 32 bit programs with ventura. That old version won't work on ventura.
