    Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 - It won't stay open

    dancingonstars5

      My Adoble Photoshop Elements 11 will not stay open when I open it. A window pops up saying that Adobe Photoshop has stopped working and needs to close. I don't know why it's closing. Windows checks for  a solution, then says that a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. It will close the program and notify me if they come up with a solution for the problem. I don't know why it does that or what's wrong. I don't want to have to restart my computer to open Photoshop everytime. What is wrong?

          Try making a direct shortcut for the Organizer and Editor. 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.

           

          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\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. navigate to Program Files on 32 bit systems.

           

          To launch, try right-clicking on the new desktop icons and choose “Run As Administrator” which often improves stability.

            Wouldn't it be great, if instead of just closing secretly hiding its error, PSE actually a) left a log of what it was doing and b) gave an error code?

             

            It's totally frustrating to have Organizer (buggy, buggy, program) stop working. Then, like a little kid, it hides its error so nothing can be done about it.

              Fully agree with your comment. I am having the same problem, to that point I have become unable to use the application. It is high time adobe simply fixed this buggy application
