I recently downloaded Elements 21 and it was working fine, but now when I click to open the Elements Editor, it will not load. I tried reinstalling the software and that doesn't work. I'm on a Mac which is up to date. Any suggestions?

Thank you Bob, good suggestion.I clicked on System Preferences, then Security and Privacy, then Click on Lock to make changes, then Full Disk Access. Then I checked the boxes for Adobe Elements 2021 and Adobe Elements 2021 Organizer. Finally, I clicked on the lock again to prevent further changes.

On home screen Organizer and Video Editor seem to work but Photo Editor still does the same revolving object. Should I turn to Apple for help. Was told that Apple and Adobe were working on the problem.

I sent the original question and tried everything with no success.  Just gave up and went to Affinity. Now all of a sudden (don't know from Mac updates or Adobe updates, PSE works perfectly.

I also have this issue with PSE 2020 on a MacBook running OSX 12.0 which was previously working ok. Setting Full Disk Access in Security and Privacy has not resolved the issue. 

When I start the app, the PSE 2020 process appears in the Mac Activity Monitor, but it then just closes before any window appears.

I hope someone can suggest a fix.

Thank you
