Methods to Duplicate Layers

Photoshop Elements 14 usually has multiple ways to accomplish a task.  Duplicating layers is no exception.  I use most, if not all, of these methods at one time or another.  So let’s look at a few options to duplicate one or more layers.

From the Menu Bar: Layer> Duplicate Layer or Alt + L> D> OK.
