None of your tips work except from Home in selecting workspaces.

right-click on an empty area of the Complete workspace / Workspace / ...View / Customize / Commands / All commands / drag the Photography, Sea 2 Sky and Essentials commands inside the top Menu (see attached). They will give direct access to the different workspaces.
I added them to top menu as you showed, but they disappeared after switching back and forth to photography.

File / Workspace / ...
crashes program, can't restart without ending PSP in Task Manager.

Home button selection of workspaces is the only stable option. No problems like this in 2020 just bug in 2021.

When your customization is done, save your workspace with a new name, and set your Preferences/Tabs on Keep last view and exit PSP. When PSP is loaded again, it will show your customized Complete workspace.
But you are right about switching from Photography to Complete loses your customized workspace. It is a bug that should be addressed.

Since I installed PSP 2021 I see an additional program running under Corel Paintshop Pro: PSPStub.exe. There is no way to end it by END TASK in Task Manager.
Furthermore a fake window that cannot be closed appears in my task bar.
Here are two screenshots.

Did you install both the 64 bit and 32bit versions, or just the 64bit version?

It is normal.
PSPStub.exe is a sort of addon to PSP 2021.
It is needed to link PSP 2021 with the new workspaces (Photography / Sea2Sky) which are coded in a different way.
You may see more than one instance of PSPStub.exe when you switch from different workspaces.

The "page failed to load" is a bug that needs to be fixed.

There is nothing you need to do. It's a bug and Corel is aware of it.
PSP2021 ver. 23.0.0.143, PSP2020 ver. 22.2.0.8 2019 ver. 21.1.0.22, and & PhotoMirage installed; PSPX thru PSP2018 owned but not installed

Unfortunately, in the trial of PSP 2021 I just cannot get the AI Upsampling to work as advertised, despite having perused the User Guide. In a simple test I tried to upsample, by 200% in size, a reasonably detailed 1920x1080 pixel, 5.98 Mb TIFF photo. PSP 2021 works away at it for several seconds and then presents me with a mystifying result. I don't get my original photo upscaled, but instead I get a larger 3840x2160 pixel image that is largely a black background with my original photo,

Hi,
This is EricLin in Corel.
About this "Failed up-sampling" issue, could you try to check if there is any update driver of your display card ?
According to our experience, this kind of issues maybe caused by the driver (System component/ Display card).
In fact, recently few of our users had this issue but indeed resolved it after updating the display card driver from the display card official website.
Could you try checking that?

Thanks.
Eric Lin
