Photoshop Elements 14: I have been using Elements for years. In this version, the rectangular marquee immediately jumps to an oval selection instead of the defined rectangle. What can I do to make this work correctly?

Try to reset the tool. On the tool's option bar, lower right, look for a box with lines. Click on it to reset. If that does not fix it, reset preferences to default: How to Reset Photoshop Elements Preferences - YouTube

Hi

Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted to PS Elements.

Most likely you have some Feather set.

 

Set the Feather to 0 (zero) px before drawing out the Rectangular Marquee Tool.
