Could you please share which version of Lightroom and Photoshop Elements do you have?
Which operating system: Windows or Mac?
Does this happen with a particular file or file format?
Thank you for responding. The problem has corrected itself just as
mysteriously as it started. The next time I started Lightroom, after
the computer had been turned off for the night, the photos were
transferred to Photoshop Elements and Elements remained displayed (i.e.,
not going back to the LR screen). Hopefully this was just some strange
anomaly. Again, thanks for responding so quickly.
Glad to know you got it sorted.
FYI. Could not show answer as correct. There is no "Correct" to select
anywhere on message.
