Upgraded from PSE9 to PSE 10. Win 7 OS. Setting the Organizer to display in Folder view, and then adjusting the Photo bin size larger (to the left) does not "take." It will remain as I set it as long as I remain in that session. If I close the program and then restart, the Organizer layout has reverted to the default layout with a small Photo bin. This was automatic in Version 9 and it saved it where I put it. How do I fix this irritating problem please?
The general suggestion when PSE starts acting goofy is to reset the Preferences. For the Organizer, rename this file to "oldpsa.prf":
That is a hidden directory, so you'll have to temporarily allow viewing hidden files in your Folder Options.
Obviously, you'll have to manually change all your Organizer's settings back to what you want.
Thanks for the suggestion - it sure sounded good, but doesn't work for me. Changed name to "oldpsa.prf", re-started PSE10, set up my workspace as I want it (essentially all I do is change the size of the Photo bin to make it larger - makes the folder display narrower), went into preferences just to hit "OK" and leave - then exited the pgm and re-started - It was back to the default workspace. Thanks anyway - I am thinking seriously about removing all things Elements then using CCleaner and jv16PowerTools to scrub the registry just to make sure there are no remnants, then reload everything. At this point I don't have any serious work to lose, so it might be better to do it now rather than lose good stuff down the road. I am a new user, as you can probably tell. If anyone has any other ideas, please send them on as I will wait a day or so before I bomb this thing. Thanks!
I am not sure de-installing and reinstalling will help. If you want a clean desinstall, see:
To save the layout, I use one of the scripts in Elements+, an affordable add-on which has a lot of missing features in Elements.
I agree with Michel that re-installing PSE probably won't help, but here is the Adobe documentation for manually removing PSE9, just change the references to "10.0":
Are you running multiple monitors?
Thanks all for your shot at helping me. I downloaded the free Revo uninstaller and bombed it all. I then used my jv16 power tools, Ccleaner, and regedit to make sure everything was gone. Re-booted, then re-installed, Voila! It is working fine now. I only installed Photoshop and not Premier just to keep the focus there. Updated the Insp. Browser and did the Camera raw update for the program. All is fine so far. Don't know what the problem was, but sometimes there just is no substitute for a big hammer! Thanks again!
