Welcome Screen

Aug 8, 2012 10:55 AM

Is there a way to get rid of the PSElements welcome screen and go directly to the edit function?  Going through all these steps is very slow.

 

Thanks.

    Try making a direct shortcut for the Organizer and Editor. Make sure you have the correct file path as there is more than one exe file. You can then launch the programs directly from the desktop bypassing the welcome screen. This is generally better as the welcome screen leaves background processes running.

     

    On Windows, Right click anywhere on the desktop and select New >> Shortcut

    Then click the browse button and navigate to:

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Elements 10 Organizer\PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe"

    Then click Next; then click Finish

     

    N.B. on 64 bit systems navigate to Program Files (x86)

      

     

    Then make a direct shortcut for the Editor in a similar manner.

    On Windows, Right click anywhere on the desktop and select New >> Shortcut

    Then click the browse button and navigate to:

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 10\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe"

    Then click Next; then click Finish

     

    N.B. on 64 bit systems navigate to Program Files (x86)

    Thanks Brett. When did Adobe fall into line?

    I created this document.... umm, a little less than a year ago, I think. Shortly after the release of PSE10. Folks kept asking and I didn't want to keep typing out the answer

    Yeah, but it doesn't use the wildly appropriate phrase "Unwelcome Screen"!
