Go to menu Window > Shapes then click at the top right of the panel that opens and in the drop down menu choose "Legacy Shapes and More"

Also note that you can drag Shapes up to the very top of the list (above all the groups), similar to how it was before. This is useful if you have several "favorite" shapes, and want to have quick access to them.

It didn't work, jsut hung up.  But I used a workaround: I had arrows from an old Photoshop file and copied a layer.

Not gone, just hidden, because nothing says, 'helping you be creative and productive' like hiding tools and features on you. Need to turn around a quick graphic with arrows? Nope, Adobe thinks it is best to waste designer's time searching their forum to discover were tools and features were moved to.

 

Anyway, helpful tip: the 'Legacy Shapes and More' are not found in the shape tool's horizontal drop down menu. You must open the shapes pallette by going to Window > Shapes.

Indeed, I suggest to create a thread on https://feedback.photoshop.com to request that menu entry in the local menu of the Option Bar.

Hi @Panamamima 

Did you try the answer that is marked "correct" in this thread? Go to the Window menu > open the Shapes panel > and from the panel menu choose "Legacy Shapes and More". If you don't see it, post a screen shot of what you do see.

Hi @Panamamima 

You are looking in the options bar. Go to the Window menu and open the Shapes panel, then look in the panel menu.

they are cheep and kids can use them to make quick pics in school

 

I've also been know to cut them up when I'm making 3D objects in Photoshop but would assume kids are the target Adobe aimed at

Seriously?

£24/month for wasting 20 mins of my time to find a tiny arrow?

Boats and trees?!
