I am new to Premiere elements 2020 and purchased it as an upgrade to Windows Movie maker which I

have used for many years. I am having trouble learning how to create the subtitles that I was easily able to 

add to my music videos in movie maker. I am surprised at the complexity of learning to do even the basics beyond creating a title. Am I missing something basic here or is this software not able to do what even movie maker did quite easily?

If you're just trying to add text to the lower third of your video frame, that's really just a one-click process.

What part is giving you trouble?

First of all thank you for responding to a rookie. For me movie maker was easy to see and synch the lyrics to the exact .01 second with my videos. I am able to roughly do this with elements but I can't seem to understand how to move the text box forward or back onoon thehthe timeline or how to set the length of time it displays. Can you give me some guidance on that? Thanks

Have you tried zooming into timeline? You can get pretty precise -- like to the very frame.
