A question has been asked by a Premiere Elements 10 Windows user "How can I change the Premiere Elements 10 Windows project preset from NTSC DSLR 480p60 to NTSC DSLR 1080p24 after the DSLR 480p60 project preset has been set?" See project preset descriptions in new project dialog/Change Settings as shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2.

The May 2013 blog post "PE11: Changing Project Settings Without Starting A New Project" demonstrated the principles for doing this for Premiere Elements 11 PAL AVCHD Full 1080i25 to PAL DV Widescreen. Although the principles for doing this type of change are applicable to other versions, certain details will differ depending on the circumstances.
So the following will detail the specifics for changing the Premiere Elements 10 project settings without starting a new project so that the project settings reflex 1080p24 instead of 480p60.
In many instances, just starting a new project may be the best choice. But the details are presented for the reader to decide whether it is in his/her best interests to start a new project or to edit the Notepad document of the saved/closed 480p60 project.
"How can I change the Premiere Elements 10 Windows project preset from NTSC DSLR 480p60 to NTSC DSLR 1080p24 after the DSLR-480p60 project preset has been set?"
The answer to the ISSUE question is found in editing the Notepad document of the DSLR 480p60 saved/closed project file (project.prel) so that it reflects key properties of a DSLR 1080p24 project when the project is reopened.
Save/close the DSLR 480p60 project.
Go to the save location of the DSLR 480p60 project file (project.prel), right click it, select Open With, followed by Notepad.
In the Notepad document, go to Edit Menu/Find. In the Find dialog's "Find What" field, type in FrameRect. And, using the dialog's "Find Next", go through the entire Notepad document changing all and only
Save the changes (Notepad File Menu/Save).
IMPORTANT: Do not change any <FrameRect> unless 00,00,640,480 is shown. Ignore any other FrameRec that has other data.
When finished with FrameRect, then in the Find dialog's "Find What" field, type in FrameRate. And, using the dialog's "Find Next", go through the entire Notepad document changing all and only
Save the changes (File Menu/Save)
IMPORTANT: Do not change any <FrameRate> unless 4237833600 is shown. Ignore any other FrameRate that has other data.
That is it. The before and after project settings as in Premiere Element 10 Edit Menu/Project Settings/General should reflect the project settings changes from 480p60 to 1080p24 as represented in Figure 3 and 4.
