Save the scanned .JPEG photofile in a folder
Right click on the file, then click on "open with" in the menu that comes up. PSE should be on the list.
Right. Should be, but isn’t.
What version of windows are you using?
Thanks for response. I think I need to modify the "open with" feature rather than the "send to" one. I'm trying to get PSE5 on the list of available programs for opening my .jpg file.

You're right. Sorry about that.
Google for "open with context menu in Windows". You will get hits for your version of Windows.
Try these steps to set pse 5 as the default for the jpegs and that will put pse 5 on the Open with menu.
In theory if you open the jpegs enough times in pse 5, windows will automatically put pse 5 on the Open with menu, but it doesn't always work.
1. Right click on the jpeg and go to Open with>Choose Default Program
2. Then click Browse and go to either
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5.0 for a 64 bit vista or C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5.0 for 32 bit vista.
Also check Always use the selected program to open this kind of file
3. Select the PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe or the Photoshop Elements 5.0.exe should also work.
Hopefully now pse 5 will show on the Open with list
