My old ps 8 had pop up Screen for photo properties showing camera settings and notes I entered. I just acquired anew computer and purchased ps13. I see now means of seeing the properties. What am I missing?
That means your information panel on the right side is not open.
Either click on the rightmost icon on the icon bar in the bottom (featuring a label)
or use the old shortcut Alt Enter to open it.
There are many interface changes since PSE11, so I would advise to take the time to read the help files about those interface changes.
