I can only give you a couple of suggestions based on Windows 10. I have no idea how to do it with a Mac.
BTW, I assume you are asking how to avoid going through the Home Screen to open each individual program. It is certainly not necessary to open the Organizer in order to go to the Editor. You may also want to be aware that links to your latest edited files are found in the Home Screen. So, if you want to work on a recently edited image, you can click on the Recent Files links that are in the lower right corner of the Home Screen, and it will open in the Editor.
Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to know! (I'm also Windows 10)
For those of us who do not want to waste our time on the splash screen and then have to wait again for the editor to open, this is a waste of time. I rarely use the orgnaizer and I use the editor a lot. having to sit and wait for 2 programs to load up everytime I want to do an edit is rediculous. We used to be able to bypass this in the past.
This is the kind of stuff that makes me skip 2 to 3 versions before I update.
They should think more about their users. No way I'd try their cloud services when the desktop software isn't convenient.
I'm sorry you have such a low pain threshold. If right-clicking the Editor's icon and pinning it to the Taskbar (so you always have access to it with one click) is too much trouble, I don't think there's much any of us can say to you.
If you wish to register a feature request, you may do so here. However, I should warn you that it may take several mouse clicks, some scrolling and some text entry to file your request.
You missed the point.
If a developer makes a change which does not improve the user experience, but actually lowers the quality of the experience you can tell them. I've seen other developers correct a change they made based on user input.
In this case there was a previous setting you used to be able to use to bypass the start up screen. They took that away. As a paying client who has paid for Adobe software programs for over a decade, I don't have a problem speaking up when I have a complaint.
Most people do not need to upgrade every year, and when the user experience takes a hit, many won't. I've skipped at least 2 upgrades twice because of changes I sw in a trial I didn't like.
That's the kind of stuff most developers want to know.
. . . which is why I gave you a link to make your point known, if you feel so strongly about it. This is a user to user forum. AFAIK, it is not monitored regularly by the developers.
