I upgraded to Photoshop Elements version 2019 from version 2.  I have a system for organizing my files.  Organizer it too intrusive and seems to do things I don't ask it to do.  I want delete/disable it.  I have no use for it.

You are the boss. Tell the organizer you don't want anything automatic or assisted. Menu Edit >> Preferences >> Media Analysis...

Untick everything.

And when in the 'Save as' menu in the editor, don't tick the box to 'Include in the organizer'. Do that once, that choice is sticky.

Now, don't throw the baby with the bath water... you don't know what you may be missing.

Thanks MichelBParis, for taking the time to respond to my question. Yes, your suggestions seem to have disabled Organizer’s preference for lurking around and operating in the background.

Hi Jeff,

As you're looking to disable the organizer, could you please check this article and let us know if it helps?

Bypass the Welcome Screen in Photoshop Elements


Also, please check this forum thread and let us know how it goes. How can I stop seeing the Home screen on startup? Elements 2019

Regards,

Yes, you most certainly want to start the editor directly, but keep in mind that some automatic tasks may run if they are not disabled first in the organizer (even if you never launch it). So, at least once, open the organizer and disable those tasks.

Thanks, Sahil, for your help. The first link takes me to a home page procedure for Photoshop Elements v.11, which is no longer available in version 2019. But the 2nd instruction there works and is the method I used to create a Window shortcut icon.

The 2nd link is helpful also in avoiding the home page.

I do not use the Organizer at all and am having storage issues. Is it possible to delete the Organizer folder from Program files? I only need the Editor. I'm using PSE 2019. I keep getting "scratch disk is full" messages.
