I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 recently. The Quick and Expert modes work just fine, but I cannot get the Guided mode to work at all. It won't offer me any options to do anything on the side. How do I get this to work?

The 'Guided' mode has a different interface, similar to what you find in tablets or smartphones: the images displayed are like menu items you find in a touchscreen device. You have to click on the selected (big) 'thumbnail' to get the following set of options displayed in the right panel. That has already fooled other users.

That's because it is a terrible change that makes no sense for those who do the majority of editing in Guided Mode. I hope someone considers changing this to an optional function, allowing people to return to the "old" viewing mode.
