I am sure you are overloaded with grips about the new Start Screen. My particular problem is that Photoshop does not appear to have focus when first open with Window 7, at least. This means that shortcuts, like Ctrl o don't do anything, and nor can you run an Action after opening Photoshop. Clicking anywhere on the Photoshop window (not just the Start Screen) fixes this.

This issue should be fixed in the current version, Photoshop 2020 v21.x or later. Let us know if you're still having trouble.
