Elements: No "fx" to select at the bottom of the Layer for drop shadow.

I am trying to add "drop shadow" to text. Following the instructions, I find that there is no "fx" at the bottom of the Layers panel. How can I find the "fx" button?

What OS are you on? Can you post a screen shot of your entire screen?

How do I add a screen shot on this feedback site?

Ahh. I just noticed you are using Elements. What version of Elements are you using?

Thank you Pete and Photoshop. That did it. BTW, someone should edit the instructions on this one.

Thanks for the feedback Jay,
Which instructions are you looking through so that I can have the content looked at and updated?

Thanks Jay,

The instructions on that page are for Photoshop and not for Photoshop Elements.
Here is a link to the current PSE help page, although I had trouble finding a specific post related to drop shadows.
