All of the words on the screens in Adobe Elements are too small

How can I make the display fonts on the screens throughout Photoshop Elements larger? I'm not talking about adding type to a photo. I'm talking about the teeny-tiny words in the menus, the dialogue boxes, the lists, etc. Sometimes I literally have to hold a magnifying glass up to my computer screen to read them! This is a problem only with Elements; everything else on my computer displays fine.

Under Edit>Preferences>Display and Cursors, try changing the UI Scale Factor to 200%.

Thanks. I did find that feature in the Editor, but there's not a Display
and Cursors in the drop down list under Preferences in the Edit tab in
Photoshop Elements Organizer. The Organizer is where I need the enlarged
type the most. 😔
The type display hasn't always been so small, but I don't remember just
when it changed, or what may have started it.

The organizer interface is managed directly from the Windows display preferences.

Right click on an empty part of your welcome screen and a menu will open with the option to edit the display settings. Set the display scaling to 125 or 150% and you should be good. That also applies to other apps on your computer, which is generally advisable.
