Using windows 8, can't install actions. No "photo creations" or "effects" folder HELP!

Jun 18, 2013 8:44 PM

I did program data- adobe- photoshop elements...this is the kicker, there is no folder for my version, which is 9.0. It's just a blue folder that says "Photoshop elements 9." I click that, and I get "AMT, ASSETS, LEGAL, LOCALES, PLUGINS" etc...


Please help me...

    Sounds like your looking at the program files


    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 9.0


    The folder you want is in


    C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0


    You need to enable show hidden files in your folder options to see the program data files

    First you should enable showing the hidden files by going to the control panel:


    1. press the Windows Logo Key+R and the type in control panel and press OK





    2. Click on Appearance and Personalization





    Then under Folder Options click on Show hidden files and folders







    Then go back to


    C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0



    and dete the following two files





    (C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us)



    Then start or restart the pse 9 editor and wait for the data base to rebuild.

    It can take awhile, so just let it run.
