I now have many photo stacks in my Organiser following edits, but can not see how to view the content of these stacks within Elements. In Organiser/View the "Expand all Stacks" option is greyed out and there is no response to clicking the individual image or its stack icon. I am obviously missing something which is presumably under my nose, and have failed to identify the help area I need - so a pointer in the right direction would be much appreciated, please.

Simply use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl D to switch between the new 'adaptative' grid view to the old 'detailed' view (or use the view menu). The small icons on thumbnails to denote stacks/version sets will appear, and you'll be able to expand or collapse your stacks/version sets.

It used to work with Elements 2022 on my Windows 10 PC in late 2021. It no longer works on my new Windows 11 PC. May be the current version has updates which broke it?

@JM-001, are you saying that Ctrl+D doesn't work?  Can you go to the Details view via the View menu?  If you have a large catalog, it can take several seconds for the view to change.

My comment wasn't about CTRL-D not working. I assume it does. I prefer using the "unstack" in the menus. If it's in the menus, then it should work, not be greyed out.

So are you saying that the menu doesn't work in the Details view?  This feature has never worked in the adaptive view as far as I can recall.  You need to be in the Details view to access this feature.
