Does it open the editor or the welcome screen?
In the open with options, do you see "Photoshop Elements 2018 Editor" and selecting that?
Ah great, I never realised or knew that I had to choose Photoshop Elements 2018 editor as standard program in the "open with" function. This feels like "or you put the plug in the socket" Lol, I'm a programmer.
Ps standard the "open with"with function only shows Photoshop Elements 2018 , not the editor
That is what I see under Windows 10.
When you go to "Open with", is there a choose another app option? If so did you check that list?
Another trick you could try is as follows:-
Got to the folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 2018
Right click on the file PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe and select copy
Right click somewhere within the folder and select copy - that should produce a second copy of the file
Rename the copy to PSE2018ED
Now see if that shows up under Open with
I have noticed that Windows sometimes gets confused and that trick seems to solve it.
Brian , at first the editor did not show in the list using the "open with" function. I now used the "select standard program" function in the "open with" popup panel and looked up PremiereElementsEditor.exe in my software folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 2018 and set that as standard.
This should work in many windows and pse versions I guess.
