Elements 15: Open Recently Edited File list

I recently upgraded to Elements 15. My OS is Windows 7 Professional.


When I try to use Open Recently Edited File, it shows an old list. This list doesn't update with the most recent files I've edited.

In the list of similar queries displayed on the right side of this forum, there is a thread about the same problem in an older version of Photoshop CC:
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/just-updated-latest-cc-2015-windows-8-1-open-...

My guess is that it may be a bug inherited from Photoshop as that happens sometimes... The code of Elements is updated from Photoshop regularly. That's good for improvements, but for bugs...
That would mean that the fix is available now (good thing), but not yet applied to Elements. No new dot release yet.  I am afraid we'll have to wait for the next version in October!
The workaround indicated above only solves the problem for maximum 100 files before resetting the machine.prefs.

I was thrilled when I found this thread.  I thought it was only me that was having this issue.  Does anyone know if Adobe has acknowledged the issue and said that they are working on a patch?

You did not read ALL the posts in this thread.
- There is not yet an available update for that issue
- anyway, it could not be POSTED here
- The present workaround is explained in detail in the present discussion.

"Thank you for getting back to me.I was contacted a day or so after posting my query and the matter was resolved."

I guess you were talking about some other matter that was resolved?  I assumed it was the matter of the Recently Edited list not working properly.

Adobe stated in that post in April that:
I"ts a known issue & our engineering team is working on it right now."
Now it's june...
I would suggest you all request a solution in that thread:

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Elements Photoshop 15 will not change the Recently Opened files list.

Elements Photoshop 15 will not update the Recently Opened Files list so how can I change this?

This has been fixed in PSE2018.
Unfortunately, no update for PSE15.
