The menus in Photoshop and any text is so small to be unreadable on my new laptop.

CC5: I have just bought a new laptop which has a dislay that is native at 3200x1800. InDesign and Adobe PDF are usable at that resolution. But the menus in Photoshop and any text is so small to be unreadable. Is there a way to enlarge the menus and other stull that is on the desktop. I have fiddled with the settings in windows (WIN10 needless to say, maybe it is that that is a problem), but I get nowhere.

That did not work.   The print is so tiny that it is difficult to read with a magnifying glass!

There is  no "scaling" on CS5.

If you have a big screen, you might see it okay.  I have a 16" laptop and it is so tiny I cannot read it.

Yes, and I tried to scale it but it didn't help.  And then today Windows did an update that messed up menu texts even more!  It's not even 1/4 inch high and I CANNOT read it.  It's like they destroyed my computer work!  Microsoft apparently wants to take over with all the crazy stuff they just installed.  I am so upset!   I have to use a magnifying glass to see the menus and it really hinders.
