I have a new Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop which has a native resolutions of 3200 x 1800. When I install the CS6 suite on this laptop, the user interfaces are too small to be seen.
Here are some screen shots. Oddly enough, inDesign is the only application that looks proper.
I've tried to find a solution to this but I can only come up with "Retina" based fixes... Have you guys made these fixes for PC users?

CS6 doesn't have any high-DPI support on Windows.
Is this still the case? I have just bought my new Vaio with a hidpi screen output
Yes Darrensplace Creative Suite 6 has not received any additional updates to add this feature.
Is this problem still unresolved? I have the same issue, and it seems incredible that Adobe will not fix it with an update. They have fixed it in their Creative Cloud suite, but why should I pay 19.99 a month when I already shelled out big bucks for the program? Does anyone know a get-around solution?
I have the same problem using a Dell XPS 15 with 3200x1800 and Win8.1.
Mainly I work with Premiere Pro CS6 and CC. The scaling disaster arises in both cases.
I tried to contact Adobe but didn' receive an answer yet.

My understanding is that Adobe fixed the problem for Apple products, but has no intention whatsoever to fix Windows for CS6. They are forcing people to purchase CC.
If you buy a new computer with high resolution, you better think about Apple or wonder if you really want to spend more money on Adobe.
I have the same computer and have patiently waited for the fix.... what a waste of time!!! This is absolutely incredible that a company that wants to compete in the graphic software market will not support resolutions which are rapidly becoming the standard... ADOBE your non-support is an absolute disgrace to your customers that spend money on your software....
download and replace this file in the same directory as your executable. All of the ones listed above are are in pretty straight forward locations like
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe or C:\Program Files\Adobe
I also tried Dan's Windows registry fix but it didn't work for me.
More recently he also has posted an updated version with a new Windows native fix at "App Scaling on High DPI Displays (FIX 2019)" but it seems buggy.
The Windows native technique works for some but apparently not for all situations.
Has anyone else encountered this and found a fix it?
CS6 hasn't been updated since it came out in 2012. And it will never be updated because it's discontinued. No longer sold or supported.
