          On the menu click:

           

          Edit >> Preferences >> Saving Files

          Make sure the top dropdown is not set to “Save Over Current File”

          If it is change to Ask if Original or Always Ask

              Try opening another file, preferably an ordinary jpeg. Make a small adjustment and use File >> Save As

              Then check the Organizer box and version set box and save and then close the file using Ctrl+W

              If that works close Elements and re-launch and hopefully the settings will stick.

                The problem is it will not let me check the “version set” box

                  It maybe a question of permissions. Are you running from an administrators account or a user account? If the latter do you have full read/write permissions for the application? What operating system do you have ?

                    

                  On Windows 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.

                  Right click anywhere on the desktop and select New >> Shortcut

                  Then click the browse button and navigate to:

                  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements 11 Organizer\PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe"

                  Then click Next; then click Finish

                    

                   

                   

                  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 (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe"

                  Then click Next; then click Finish

                   

                  N.B. on 32 bit systems navigate to Program Files

                   

                  Right click on each of the new desktop icons and launch by choosing “Run As Administrator”

                  Keep both applications running but try to edit and save a photo as before.

                    So you can see the “save in version set” is functioning?

                     

                    Could it be a software fault. I have never had this problem before and have been using Elements for years.
