Fix Adobe Elements 15 to Properly List Recently Edited Files

The Problem
When using Adobe Photoshop Elements 15, you click on File/Open Recently Edited Files.
The program stops keeping track of the most recently edited files after you have opened more than 20 files.  At that point, it only lists the first 20 recently opened files.
You can increase the number of files remembered up to a maximum of 100.  Go to Edit/Preferences/Saving Files and enter a number from 0-100.  It remembers the first 100 files that you opened, not the last 100.

The Solution
To reset what Photoshop Elements remembers, do the following (Applies to Windows only)
Hold down the Windows key and type R (or search RUN)
Type %appdata% and click OK
Go to Adobe/Photoshop Elements\15.0 (or whatever version of Photoshop Elements you are running)
Rename the folder Editor to Editor_old
Relaunch Photoshop Elements.
