Using Windows 10 Pro on a 64-bit system. I installed my licensed Elements 14 and launched and used it successfully. However, once I have quit Elements, it will NOT start again, neither from calling the application itself (Start Menu) nor from attempting to open a file with Elements. NOTHING visible happens in response any call to the application. Nothing short of system restart fixes the problem.
Inconvenience is sincerely regretted.
The process Photoshop Elements in task manager is the one for Elements 14. You can quit it manually from the task manager and then try launching the elements.
It should work fine then.
The reason elements editor does not open after quitting it once would be that the process is still working in the background, please check by getting into the task manager.
Quit the elements editor process manually in task manager.
Right click on the elements icon on the desktop and click on Properties> compatibility. There set the program to work on compatibility mode and select windows & in the drop down. Also set it to Run as Administrator. Click on Apply> Okay.
Do the same thing for Elements Editor application by getting to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 14 and then check the program functionality.
Thanks and regards
