I am running CS6 Design and Web premium.  Dreamweaver and Photoshop interfaces look extremely small on my large 2560 x 1080 dell monitors.   How do I enlarge the interfaces?  Its very hard to use these this small.

I fixed this by changing the High DPI settings. Right click on dreamweaver.exe (Programs files (x86)/adobe/adobe dreamweaver cs6) and select "properties". Then select the compatibility tab, then "change high DPI settings"; then uncheck "use this setting to fix scaling problems..." (if checked) and instead checek "override high DPI scaling behavior..." - select scaling performed by system, click OK.

Dw CS6 is not hi-dpi aware, but if you are using windows you can apply a system wide setting to increase the size of the UI. Unfortunately i think this would apply it to everything and not just Dw.

I can well imagine that it's hard to see.  Legacy CS6 is not Hi-DPI aware and it never will be as CS6 is no longer supported. 

The only thing I can suggest is changing your display settings to use a lower resolution.  On Windows10, you can try increasing the scale % but this may cause some app panels to be truncated.

Modern Photoshop CC has a scale setting in the Preferences panel (see screenshot).   But CS6 does not have this option.
