This is a situation that may be present as soon as you install Photoshop Elements and run it for the first time, or it may mysteriously disappear at some point. All versions of Photoshop Elements require the screen resolution to be set 1024×768 or higher. In addition, the Windows font DPI setting must be set at 100% or 96 DPI. If the DPI is set at a larger size, for example 120 DPI, Elements does not have enough room to display the characters on the Menu Bar.
What has happened is that at some point you or another program has changed the font size to make the printing on the screen larger and easier to read. This video shows how you can easily reset the DPI setting back to its default. The video uses Vista, but the steps are the same in Windows 7.
