It turns out I had to go to Help, Welcome Screen to see the Welcome Screen because apparently I had told the program to always open Organizer at startup.
Great news. And, great job in going from Premiere Elements workspace to Welcome Screen, using the opened project Help Menu/Welcome Screen.
I took that information for granted in the process of going through the maneuvers in the Welcome Screen to get the launch order that you sought. I should have included that Help Menu/Welcome Screen as your starting point..
