I cant find a way to tidy stacks, what i mean is......

I installed elements 6 on my mac and i have a stack for my applications but the elements installed into my applications so when i click it in my stack it opens a finder window and i have to click on the actual application for it to open! This is annoying me...arrrrrrrrr!!!

Can anyone help? Where should all the little extra files be stored? stockphoto, help viewer, tutorials, legal etc be kept? Any help please!

I'm assuming you mean Photoshop Elements 6. I, too, have it and I noticed it installed a folder containing a bunch of stuff including the application itself. I don't use stacks. I have the folders on my dock set as "List", not "Stacks". When I click the application in that newly added folder, it opens the the application. Hope this helps!

To change those folders on the dock from stacks to lists, simply right-click (control + click) on the folder and select "List".

All Adobe programs come with their own folder within the applications folder. If it's a program you use a lot then just place the app itself on the dock.

Nope, applications are mainly stored in the Applications folder.
