The Program does no keep track of recently edited files, only the first several So after you've accessed the several, Elements is of no help tracking recent files. Many times I do not use Elements for a while, and so there are times I don't remember where one of the recent files is located.
Every other major application has this feature; it can be of significant help. Good overview for the current PSE user. Not for the beginner. PSE is a "deep" program the options have many options , you'll still need the tutorials to be productive. But this a good cheat sheet of what PSE can do. Recommended for the current PSE user who whats to increase the tools they use.
Very useful for quick reference, but still need the book for more complicated functions. One person found this helpful. Really helps to get around Photoshop Elements! More of a quick start guide than a reference card.
