I can't find the Pixel Grid option like I would have in CS5. I just upgraded. Any ideas?

View > Show > Show Pixel Grid

Note: The pixel grid is only visible when zoomed in on any document. You won't see it at 100% in most cases.

menu

Another possibility, brought up by Lèse majesté, is OpenGL preferences. Do you have a video card which meets the minimum system requirements? If you view Preferences > Performance, under Graphic Processor Settings, are those enabled?

Exactly my point. I don't see that option anywhere. Updating my question to show this. –  EGHDK Dec 24 '12 at 3:03
    
Then I'd suggest an installation issue. It should be right there in the menu, under Notes. –  Scott Dec 24 '12 at 3:05
    
Damn. Guess I'll be re installing. –  EGHDK Dec 24 '12 at 3:17

It's very unlikely that this is due to a fowled up installation. It's more likely he just doesn't have OpenGL/GPU-acceleration enabled. –  Lèse majesté Dec 24 '12 at 3:31
    
@Lèsemajesté good point. Will add that to answer. –  Scott Dec 24 '12 at 7:19

Click on Show Extras Options at the bottom of the tab, then check the Pixel Grid box.

Go into Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid, Slices... Then change some things in Grid, like Gridlines every {number} pixels

How does this solve the problem? Does the pixel grid option come back in the menu? –  Bart Arondson Mar 19 at 21:35

I had this same problem when I plugged in my external monitor. Restarting Photoshop fixed the missing Show Pixel Grid menu item.
