When you upgrade to Photoshop Elements 10 from 9, all of your settings, including Albums and Keyword Tags, will transfer.

If you go from older versions to newer versions, skipping several in between, you may loose some items. This is detailed here: Common catalog issues | Upgrade | Elements 6 or later Organizer

The missing menus in Elements 9 is caused by an issue with not using the correct display settings, detailed here: Menus missing | Elements 8, 9 Organizer | Windows

However, this was changed with version 10. The menus will display with your current display settings.
