    Default Photoshop CC - buttons and toolbars

    I have two high res monitors and Photoshop CC at work but cant figure out how to make the buttons and toolbars bigger as they look ridiculously small and my eyes are no longer like an eagle's. I have tried edit/preferences/interface/UI font size scaling from 100%-200% and the results are less than satisfactory. Does anyone know how to do it?

    Hi Richard. I am not sure what system you are using but for Apple it is under Photoshop CC/preferences/interface. I suspect Microsoft is edit/preferences/interface. There is a button under that Tab for scaling the user interface. From my recollection with high res screens you would go for 200%. On my Apple gear this seems to happen automatically. Good luck.

    Cheers Alec

    I tried to edit my post but it would not let me. Having re-read your post it is clearly a Microsoft system you are using. If you have fiddled with the 3 scaling buttons then I cannot really suggest anything else. Apple takes over the scaling so that option is greyed out on my hi-res screen but the icons are a reasonable size . Cheers Alec

    First of all I assume CC is up to date, the fix for this is quite recent. A quick google reveals this:

    Go to Edit>Preferences>Technology Previews
    In that dialog, in the left panel, click Interface
    Go down to Text section
    There you can change UI Font Size to Large
    You can also change UI Scaling to 200%

    Restart Photoshop for the new settings to take effect
    Experiment with those to get the best sizing for your screen resolution.
    I set both (Large & 200%) on my laptop to get text I can read.

    This really should be automatic, Adobe gouges you a subscription charge and can't even get basic stuff like this right.

    Hi Alec, It is Microsoft I am using and I have done some fiddling without much success. Thank you for your suggestions.

    Thanks Chris, I shall have another go this time setting the scaling to 200% and varying the UI font till I get something that looks OK. Agree that something so bleeding obvious and that affects everyone who uses the software should be a priority fix for them.
    Cheers

    That's precisely why I have not joined the CC bandwagon, I'll stay with CS-6. My new UW requires a new raw converter so I'm going to try out Capture One.

    Wouldn't your new kit have a DPP-equivalent supplied by the mfr?

    yes it does but it's not so user friendly, but does do a half decent job on the conversions.
