Save as windows have gone to the bottom.

 I run a Macbook and have Monterey fully updated. My PSE 2021 has a glitch — or Apple does, I'm unsure. I do my editing and then hit file/save as just like I've always done since 2010 when I started. For some obscure reason when I hit save as the window is half off the screen at the bottom. Yes, easy to grab hold of and lift it up, but I've never had to do this before.

 

Does anyone know a fix? Apple/system pref/display/scaled makes no difference. Tried 'everything.' Arghhh. Uninstalled PSE 2021, reinstalled because actually the darned thing would not open no matter what.

Try this:

Restore default preferences
Preference settings control how Photoshop Elements Editor 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 could 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 Editor. For information on a specific preference option, search for the preference name in Help.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. Having tried this I can confirm it does not work. As an example this is what happens:
I edit in expert mode, finish the project and go file/save as. YES! The save as window is dead centre. Then open another project, click file/save as and the window has dropped. Open a third project and save as and the window is half off the very bottom of the screen.

It looks like I'm just going t have to live with it by dragging the save as window up to use it.

Maybe it's just me and no one else in the entire world has this problem 😞
