I have Photoshop 2022 on my Windows computer and I do not have the rectangular tool in my toolbar. With my research, I've tried to Edit > Toolbar, but there is not a toolbar option in the Edit tab. Neither is there three dots at the bottom of the toolbar to bring up an extended menu to make changes.

Is there another way for me to edit my toolbar and access the rectangular tool?

If you are using Elements 2022, it will open up in the Quick edit mode by default.  Change to Expert mode and the remaining tools will appear.

Try this:

Restore default preferences
Preference settings control how Photoshop Elements Editor displays images, cursors, and transparencies, saves files, uses plug‑ins and scratch disks, and so on. If the application exhibits unexpected behavior, the preferences file could be damaged. You can restore all preferences to their defaults.

Note: Deleting the preferences file is an action that cannot be undone.

Do one of the following:

Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Mac: Option+Command+Shift) immediately after Photoshop Elements begins launching. Click Yes to delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements settings file.
Go to Edit > Preferences (Mac: Photoshop Elements > Preferences > General), click the Reset Preferences on next launch button, and then click OK. When you restart Adobe Photoshop Elements, all preferences are reset to default settings.
A new preferences file is created the next time you start Photoshop Elements Editor. For information on a specific preference option, search for the preference name in Help.
