Hello, I have Adobe Photoshop Elemtns 2021 and have never been able to get pen pressure working for my Wacom tablet. I have been searching for a solution, and followed a guide to add a .txt file to "C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Adobe Photoshop 2021 Settings" called "PSUserConfig.txt"
Except I cannot find the final folder in the destination. I have "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" enabled. I even tried typing it in manually, but only got an error message, attached below.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I feel I am so close to solving my pen pressure issue, and yet so far.
I believe the solution you are trying is for Adobe Photoshop CC and will not work for Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021.
It uses the Optional Extensions feature of Photoshop CC which I don't think is part of the Photoshop Elements application:
See if these steps work instead:
- Update Elements 2021 to the latest version: Photoshop Elements 2021 update (version 2021.2)
- Open the Wacom tablet properties
- Click on the Photoshop Elements Application
- Choose the MappingTab (Pen/Eraser/Mapping)
- Uncheck "Use Windows Ink"
This has fixed a number of issues in the past (but I'm not 100% certain whether it fixes pressure issues too).
Thanks for your help, I didn't realize there was a seperate forum for Elements. That expains why I couldn't find the folder, I never would have come to that answer on my own.
Thank you also for the advice on fixing my tablet. It didn't work, but I appreciate you trying. This support forum seems to be full of awesome supportive people like you, and I'm very grateful for it.
