I've got a question - I use photoshop elements and in the past i've been able to just click on the part of the image that I want to select and it then selects that layer. Now I have to hold down the apple (mac) key for it to let me choose that layer when clicking in the image portion of my screen. If this makes sense does anyone know what setting I might have changed?

I've been trying to fix this for over a week and about 5 minutes after posting found the check box - auto select layer :)

Yep. Auto Select layer is a tiny little option on the top tool bar. In PSCS/CC it's off by default, but in PSE, it's on by default. I hate it, personally! LOL But, to each their own!

Ha! I'm the opposite! I love autoselect and turn it on on PSCC!

I think it's just because I "grew up" without that option (using Photoshop before that feature existed). And so when I want to move something, I just assume I'm moving the selected layer and not expecting it to select an item. So it drives me crazy. You "grew up" on PSE, which has that feature on by default, so you probably got used to that way pretty quick. LOL
