This issue is created by having your screen DPI set too high.

While changing your screen resolution will change the size of all objects on your screen relative to others, changing your screen DPI will cause text to change size without regard to its surroundings. By increasing the DPI, the text for the menus outgrows the menu bar. At this point it is replaced by the double arrow (>>) that acts as a container for the menus.

To prevent this kind of behavior, please follow the system requirements for Photoshop Elements and use a DPI of 96. More information is available in cpsid_85961.
