What do you mean by the edit-functions?
Nothing has been changed in Elements 15; what older version are you comparing it with?
I assume the full-Frame-View is the one you get with the shortcut F11?

Another food for thought suggestion would be the concept of Floating Layers.  Anton, please take 5 minutes to watch this quick video that will get you the best situation for full frame.  I hope this helps.

Hello Michel!
Thank you for your answer!
Sorry, my  Englisch ist not the best.
With the shortcut F11 i get the picture in full-frame - I know. My last Version = PSE 13.
In the Full-Frame-View i miss the Quick-Edit-Panel  - https://helpx.adobe.com/elements-organizer/using/view-video-full-screen-images.html
I have the panel with 
Apply:
Edit:  The text and all buttons doesn't exist  (PSE 13  really)
Rotate:
Actions:

Is this correct?

Many thanks - Anton

Hello Anton,
You are absolutely right.
The ability to use the 'Fix' button to open the 'Apply' panel shows that the editing options which were present in older versions has been removed. I dit not notice it.
I think it's because the editing options which have disappeared were the same used for quick edit in the organizer without opening the editor. Those options have been replaced in the normal (not full-frame) view by other much more advanced tools with the 'instant tool' button on the bottom bar. The interface is totally new and adapted to editing with a touchscreen and the huge advantage is that it enables editing several images with the same edits (kind of batch editing).
So, the Elements 15 organizer version requires either to open the files in the editor: maximum power but takes a little time, or to work in the 'normal', not 'full-frame' view with the new interface. Near full frame view, better tools, batch editing ability and speed.
I think that not so many users did use the editing tools in the old full-frame view, so I am afraid you'll have to change your workflow... but once you get used to it, you may prefer the new version.

Thank you for the information!
But I am of the opinion that the removal of the button for the introduction into the editor is a big step back. To edit the picture I have to look in the organizer the corresponding picture so I can edit it. Exception: the image to be edited is the initial image in full screen mode.
I think this is a bug in the program.
Nevertheless many thanks!
But I have a bigger problem and I do not find it funny.
If
I only one image in the Organizer mark and with CTRL-C to copy to prepare, I can wait eternally until the target folder is ready to save this image with CTRL-V. This is not only on my PC, but also on my notebook.
If you already know this, or have a solution for it.
Thank you and best wishes - Anton Gutschik

I totally agree. The ideal behaviour would be that the last viewed image in the F11 filmstrip should be selected (focussed) when leaving the full view mode.

I only one image in the Organizer mark and with CTRL-C to copy to prepare, I can wait eternally until the target folder is ready to save this image with CTRL-V.
I NEVER use the shortcuts CTRL-C and CTRL-V to move or duplicate files when I am in the organizer.
- to MOVE: I use the drag and drop solution to move a selected thumbnail to the destination folder in the left folders panel (displaying the folder tree).
- to DUPLICATE (copy) I use the File >> Duplicate folder : CTRL + Shift + D. That creates a copy with the suffix -copy in the file name; the copy is in the original folder. If I want it in another folder, I move it as explained above.
