It's not clear from the above how to instruct APE 11 to find files on the hard drive. This should be included in the above information and clearly explained. So far, I've only been able to do it by trial and error.
You will find best advice over on the video forum. Most of us here are photographers.

The Organizer is designed to help you quickly locate your video, photos and audio files.
Have you added all of your computer's media to your Organizer's catalog?
What criteria will you be using to search for your file? Date it was captured? Name of the file? People in the video? Place it was shot? Event it recorded?
Sorry for the mistake. Again, this is one of the problems for the neophyte Premiere Elements user, when Help is 'clicked' it's hard to know where you will be directed (in this instance, Help was chosen from within Premiere Elements 11).

But if that isn't quite what you need, you can always order a copy of my book:

Are you trying to browse files using Windows Explorer and add the desired file to APE 11? If yes, here's the link to the Help page that tells you how to do this:

Hope this helps,
Thank you Chiradeep for your suggestions and help.
To add even more confusion to 'Premiere Elements', I've just upgraded from v-10 to v-11. The latest version seems quite different from earlier versions and the learning curve is somewhat steep for a neophyte, especially without the help of step-by-step manual.
Adobe really needs to do much better in providing indexed information to users who would simply like to sit down and put some video clips together to make an acceptable presentation.
Thank for the information.
Are the manuals you produce fully indexed? What is (or what will be) the cost of the combined PhotoShop and Premiere Elements 11 manual? How are they ordered?
