Try trashing the prefs which is usually necessary after updating OSX.
Launch Finder and go to your Username >>Library >> Preferences
Send the following files/folders to the trash:
Adobe Photoshop Elements 17 Paths
Adobe Photoshop Elements 17 Settings.
The library is hidden in recent versions of OSX. To get to your user library quickly, from the top menu in Finder, click “Go” whilst holding down the Option (Alt) key and your user Library will appear for you to choose.
One other thing to try:
Click System Preferences in the dock and open Security & Privacy
Choose the Privacy tab and the choose Accessibility
Click the lock to unlock (you may be prompted for your Apple system login password)
Then click the plus button
Macintosh HD >> Applications >> Adobe Photoshop Elements 2019 >> Support Files
Choose (highlight) Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor and click open (or simply add a check-mark if already listed)
Re-lock and try the editor again, even if not added to the control list, after closing Security & Privacy
Try launching Elements again. Let us know if that works
