I used to be easily able to clone stamp damaged images in PSE9 - it seems impossible in 2019 ver. In dummy terms what the hell do I do to clone an area into another. I used alt/click to select background, but it does not work

Do you have more than one layer in the image?  (I assume that you are clicking when you are over the target area.)  Are you seeing the image overlay of the source area? Without knowing more, all I can suggest is that you reset the tool.  At the far right of the Tool Options panel, there is a "hamburger" dropdown icon that allows you to reset the tool.

What tool options are selected? 

The tool still works with an Alt+Click of the source.  The only major change has been the Clone Overlay option which allows you to see exactly what the source will look like when placed over the target.  You can adjust the opacity and change how the tool behaves by clicking on the Clone Overlay button.

Forget my last. I unticked 'clone overlay' and it began working properly. Many thanks for your assistance.
