How to Make Elements 3 Look and Act Like Elements 2

By now you’ve already noticed that Elements 3 has a new interface (new Toolbox, new way it displays your photos, new palette scheme—new everything). Now, although I think the new interface is a huge step in the right direction, we both know there are people out there who don’t like change (not you and me, of course—other people. Freaks mostly). Anyway, if you run into those “no-change people,” you can show them how to quickly change the Elements 3 interface to look and act just like previous versions of Elements using the technique below.

Step One

The most obvious difference between versions is that the Elements 2 floating Toolbox has been replaced by a single-row Toolbox that is attached to the left side of your screen in Elements 3. To make it look like the old floating Toolbox again, just click on the tiny tab that appears at the top of the Toolbox and drag it out into your work area. The old two-row floating Toolbox is back. To return to the single-row look, just drag the top of the Toolbox back to the top-left corner where the single row had been.
