After successfully using PSE 2021 for a few weeks, not the Editor doesn't launch anymore. 

Any idea how to fix this? 

 

Thank you  very much for your help.

I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling the program.

Could you please confirm the below details:

1. Is your Product Activated?

2. Do you see the Blue Color Splash Screen when you try to launch the Editor?

3. Have you tried launching it from Inside the Applications Folder -> Photoshop Elements 2021 -> Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor

4. Have you tried rebooting your system?

5. Please check if Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor is already running in Activity Monitor, if Yes -> Please kill it and then try again.

I think you should rather suspect an issue linked with the new feature to use the Creative Cloud desktop in PSE2021.

In my case, I aldready have a subscription. The first time the editor refused to open, the Creative Cloud also refused with an error. Rebooting enabled me to log in again. However I had to uninstal and reinstal PSE like @kandy_kan .

I would not be surprised if other PSE2021 users did uninstall the Creative Cloud desktop. There does not seem to be a difference between Win or Mac.
