This "compare photos" features in earlier versions was terrific. I can't find this "compare" feature in PS-12. Is there another way to compare photos?

In the organizer : F12
In the editor, various display options either in the 'View / images' menu or the the display layout icon on the the bottom icon bar.
You may have to use the editor preferences (Edit / preferences / general ) and check the option to allow floating windows in expert mode.

Michel,
Thank you. I set the preferences per your directions. Next question: Now that I may compare photos, how do I delete the ones I don't want? The delete option is not an "active choice" when I look under the edit options. I want to be able to delete some photos when comparing.

I never delete files from the editor, only from the organizer; I don't think there is a way to delete from the editor, you would have to delete from your OS (explorer / finder).
In the organizer, once a photo or several ones are selected, just hit the delete key, and you'll be prompted to delete from the catalog and if you want, from the drive.
