I'm trying to do a simple two picture collage and the editor keeps crashing. Then I get a box that says, "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."  Sometimes it asks me if I would like to send a report to Adobe. When I try to see the issue if just references the Adobe privacy policy.  Can anyone help me with this issue? Thx!

Try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer's site.

If that doesn't do it, reset the preferences:

Restore default preferences

Preference settings control how Photoshop Elements Editor displays images, cursors, and transparencies, saves files, uses plug‑ins and scratch disks, and so on. If the application exhibits unexpected behavior, the preferences file could be damaged. You can restore all preferences to their defaults.

Note: Deleting the preferences file is an action that cannot be undone.

Do one of the following:

  • Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Mac: Option+Command+Shift) immediately after Photoshop Elements begins launching. Click Yes to delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements settings file.
  • Go to Edit > Preferences (Mac: Photoshop Elements > Preferences > General), click the Reset Preferences on next launch button, and then click OK. When you restart Adobe Photoshop Elements, all preferences are reset to default settings.

A new preferences file is created the next time you start Photoshop Elements Editor. For information on a specific preference option, search for the preference name in Help.

Thanks for the response. I already tried this and it didn't work. The editor just keeps crashing for no reason.

I notice your "Elements 14 Editor has stopped working" issue is listed as unresolved on the forum. I hadn't used my Elements 14 for quite a number of months (perhaps a year) and in using it for the first time in a while I have developed the same issue that you appear to have. If you have resolved your issue but haven't updated the status, perhaps you can tell me how you resolved the problem. Failing that, I will have to try getting onto the staff administrators for help. Thanks for your time.

Please help me too, I spent 4 hours on the Adobe help chat line and it made matters worse. The whole message says: Photoshop Elements 14 has Stopped Working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.  I am running Windows 10 and it used to work just fine until my hard drive was replaced.

 

Thank for the help in advance.
