Photoshop should boot directly to a tab/screen where the user wants to do work. You should be able to select which of the four tabs you want to come up when you start the application!

Um, can you provide a bit more information on what you mean?
What you have posted makes no sense.

Which product are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?

What is "elive"?
What do you mean "boot to another tab"?
What "four tabs" are you referring to?

It's Elements 13.

I can't test it because it is not available in my country, but whichever of the four tabs you choose : elive, quick, guided or expert should be sticky next time you open the editor.

It doesn't work in 13 either. It seems to be bugged - some days it works, other days it just continually wastes my time by opening in eLive or Quick mode. I used to use Photoshop Elements 5, and I'm considering going back to that. It may not have as many features, but at least it didn't piss me off by wasting my time with online garbage and newbie-friendly junk.

I agree, the elive is useless to the slightly more experienced Photoshop user.

There should be an option to skip it, it should always open to the 'expert' tab.
