Opening Organizer from Editor

Apr 8, 2013 11:38 AM

I have Elements 11, using windows 8. When I am in the Editor mode I can't open the Organizer, I get a message that elements isnt working and needs to shut down. I also can't get a picture I am looking at in the Organizer to pop open in the Editor without first going to the Editor and opening it from there.

    Please reset Organizer and Editor preferences and see if the issue still happens.


    For Editor, launch editor keeping Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys pressed. Delete the settings file when prompted.

    For Organizer, go to %appdata%\adobe\elements organizer\11.0\organizer and delete psa.prf and status.dat files
