    You can use the custom shape tool (circled, lots of arrows there) or the line tool with the arrowhead option turned on:

    The shape tools are in the toolbox just to the right of the eyedropper and below the gradient tool.

    Well there is another way to it. You don't have to always make such simple shapes all the time.Some shapes and graphics are already given in PSE 11. Those are very handy and always ready to use.

    Just switch to Expert mode, in the bottom right side you will see Graphics. Click on it, a panel will appear. In the dropdown list choose Graphics/Shapes.

    A whole list is available for you, with various options to choose.

    Click on the shape tool (highlighted by red in the below screenshot and numbered as 1)

    Click on the drop down list to select the desired shape(numbered as 2)

    Select Arrow shapes fromt he list(highlighted by green in the below screenshot and numbered as 3)
