Photoshop Elements Organizer: menus drawing incorrectly

Have installed Photoshop Elements 7 on my new laptop but in Organize File Edit View Window Help are not visible. I have to find invisible >> with the mouse to get these in a dropdown menu.

How do I make them permanently visible? They are visible on my old PC.

In PSE7, it happens at higher system dpi. What is your system dpi?

You can either set the Windows text size back to 100% (96 DPI), or you can set the Organizer option Edit > Preferences > General > Use System Font. With the latter, the results aren’t always the prettiest, e.g. the font in the Editor’s menu bar stays small, but the font in the dropdown menus gets large. But this workaround at least lets you keep the text size large so that you can read the text in all your other applications.

For Windows 7: Start > Control Panel > Display. To choose a custom size, click Set Custom Text Size (DPI) on the left

Resetting Windows text to 100% worked. It also solved another issue for me! So many thanks twice over, and for the prompt response. much appreciated.
