By @Evgeny Buzov

 

There is nothing common between the editor and the organizer for the user interface.

The editor layout has evolved since more than 20 years from the photoshop one and has kept the same general menus organization, adapted to desktop work with relatively big displays and medium resolution. For the millions of users of Photoshop and Elements, a drastic change is not easy at all and involves so many submenus that it's no longer possible to satisfy at the same time users of very big ultra HD displays, standard HD desktop, all sorts of laptops. You can see the new interfaces for the new 'Cloud' apps which are more simplified and flexible. For Elements, such a change to satisfy both ultra HD users, small HD laptops, old limited laptops would mean much more than scaling of fonts and probably really different interface layouts.

 

Now, with the organizer we also have a 20 years old software, created independently and with much less complexity in the menu structure. Practically, little in common with the editor. With PSE11 a totally rebuilt interface was introduced, clearer but not very flexible even if it has a lot of customization possible. Scaling fonts is a different issue: the organizer conforms to the Windows settings and does not use the 'trick' of using 100% or 200% resolution.

This is a huge pain!  I just downloaded PSE2022 this morning.  The menu bar and menu font is so teeny tiny that I need binoculars to use the program.  Who thought this was a great idea?  Is there no way to fix it?

I am in the same boat. This fixed it for me but makes no sense. I went into edit/preferences/Display and Cursors. In the High Density Displays drop down I picked large. Which was actually humungous and totally unusable. So I switched back to automatic and the fonts were a normal size. Maybe after the insatllation the software uses some windows fonts????? Yuo need to close and reopen Elements for the shange to take effect.
