Try making a direct desktop icon for the Organizer and see if you can launch the program directly from the desktop bypassing the welcome screen.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select New >> Shortcut
Browse to Computer OS C:
And find the PSE Organizer application in Program Files or Program Files (x86) on Windows 7 - 64 bit.
Inside the Adobe >> Photoshop Elements Organizer folder you are looking for an application file “PhotoshopEementsOrganizer”
Select it and click OK
Then click finish
You should now be able to launch directly form the desktop by double clicking on the icon.
The Organizer preferences may have become corrupted, needing to be automatically re-built on a re-start.
Click the Start Button and then your user name (in place of mine) and navigate to:
C: Users >> 99Jon >> AppData >> Roaming >> Adobe >> Elements Organizer >>8.0 >> Organizer
Delete the PSA file (with key symbol) and delete Status.dat
After deleting these two files re-start the program
AppData may be a hidden system file. See the link to reveal hidden files.
