Using Elements 2021 for the first time.
Every time I attempt to open a file, the program stalls and fails to open, let alone add the file to the timeline.
Mac or Windows, and exactly which version of the operating system?
Also, details about system hardware and especially video card driver version?

Windows is often not up to date when it comes to device drivers... go to Intel to see if there is a new driver
Go to the vendor for your computer to see if there is an update that is specific to your computer
Drivers are up to date, according to Windows and Intel .
Able to access files in other photo and video editing software
