It used to be that when I opened a file (jpg, etc.) it appeared at fit-on-screen size.  For some reason it now opens at some larger size, not 1:1, not any menu option.  It's easy enough to switch the view to fit-on-screen, but it's annoying to have to do so.  I'd like to get things back to where hey were, but I can't find any way to tell Elements what size (view) to use when opening a file.  Can anyone educate me?

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.
