With Elements 15 now and Windows 10. I have hundreds of slightly different pdfs with slightly different names created with Elements 8? stored in folders on a hard drive. Now when in Elements 15 I go to the folder and click on them it tells me there is no preview available to jog my memory of which pdf I am about to open. Is this my user error or another lost pdf facility with Elements 15?

The organizer in version 15 does no longer support pdf files. The editor can (still) open the pdfs.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, It can open the pdfs, but not preview them?  Does anyone know if this is the first version of Elements not to preview pdfs? If so,  I may buy an earlier version as this is an important feature to me.

Yes, the organizer did support cataloguing pdf file in prior organizer versions including Elements 14. If you already had an older version, you could reinstall it. You can have two different Elements versions available at the same time on your computer.

Thank you yet again.
I will have to consider installing my very old Elements on my new computer or buying a slightly newer version with a few more bells and whistles.
