My video length is 15 minutes.  When I export it to Quick Export, the length is 2 hours and 19 minutes and the file size is over 6GB.  How can I get it back to 15 minutes and a realistic file size?  Elements 2018.  Windows 10.

You likely have stray clips or frames beyond the end of your movie.

Press the \ key (above Enter) to display your entire movie's timeline. Does its show a much longer timeline than your actual movie? If so, drag to select stray clips in the area beyond your movie and delete those clips.

Are you looking at the readout of how long it will take to "render" the final output?  Depending on the computer, effects and adjustments, it can take much longer to make the video than to play the video.

Thank you.  I did not see them but deleted everything in the blank area and there must have been something there,

If you can not see the clip - add one beyond the time noted, then use the delete and close feature- That fixed the issue for me - using ver PE22
