For Windows users the only bypass I know is to create shortcuts from the executables.
The default locations of these executables are as follows:
For the editor    -  C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 2020
For the organizer -  C:\Program Files\Adobe\Elements 2020 Organizer
So you navigate to the required folder and search for the executable which is called: PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe and PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe

Right click on the executable and select "Create Shortcut".
Once the Shortcut (default location: Desktop) has been created you can right click on the Shortcut and select to put it in your Start Menu or/and in the Taskbar (for Windows 10).

Or just pin the editor and organizer to your task bar.
