Elements 15: Floating all windows not working

After the recent Windows 10 update, Float in all windows doesn't work properly.  I have all the correct option selected. 

Each time I open a file, this is what happens.
I have to select 'all floating' in the Layout, and in 'Window>images>Float in all windows, and I have to do that for each image I open. 

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, clear all temp/cache/cookies, new laptop.  This just started with the Windows update which was about a week ago.

I've set, and reset the preferences, countless times.  Nothing works.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can anybody tell me whether the 'thumbnail' problem has been solved in PSE2019 with the latest Windows 10 Version 1809.  I would like to upgrade, but I don't want to do so unless the issue has been resolved.  (I reverted to PSE14 from PSE15 to solve the issue and am still using it, but would prefer a more up-to-date PSE version).  Many thanks.  Jane Bain

Yes, the issue is solved in PSE2019. My suggestion: download the trial version (free for 30 days). Note that the system requirements now recommend at least 8GB of RAM.
