Dreamweaver program print is too small to read, can it be increased?

I have downloaded the trial DW and I can hardly see the various print sections on the program panel itself - view, file, etc.  I can see the coding (it is too big actually).  I have never seen a program with such tiny print in the menus and bars.  Can this be increased?   Can the font size in the display code section be decreased?  How please?   I am finding the size difference very difficult to work with.  I have six days left to see if I can work this and make it worth subscribing to.  Such a minor thing but with dyslexia it is proving to be something slowing things down considerably.  Attaching a screen shot I hope will illustrate the problem.  dw sample.jpgThank you

On Win10, Display Settings.  I have my slider moved to the right.   I should warn you though, this may truncate some panels.

Please see Dreamweaver CC 2017 does not display correctly on Windows Hi-DPI machines

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Thank you for the link.  Followed the directions and attaching the result.  The working window is improved.  The other areas - menu, tool bars etc. - on the program itself remain far too small to comfortably work for long.  Maybe there is another issue or work around that would solve this.

GUESS WHAT? I figured out a way to fix it and I hope it can help others! As mentioned earlier the CS6 software worked great for years on my Windows 10 platform - until 3 days ago when the text automatically (without changing any computer resolutions settings or configurations) got so TINY I could hardly read it on the screen. SOLUTION: I went to the Task Manager (Ctl+Alt+Del) and then went to the STARTUP tab. I Disabled all the Adobe software such as Adobe CS5 Service Manager, Adobe CS6 Service Manager, Adobe Reader and Acrobat Manager, Adobe Updater Startup Utility and Adobe Acrobat Speed Launcher. Then I REBOOTED my computer and Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop and Fireworks text menus were all larger and more legible!!!  I HOPE THIS HELPS OTHERS! (not sure if i will need to do this everytime I restart the computer but it worked!!!

I wonder if simply rebooting your computer made the difference.  As far as I know, the Adobe services mentioned have absolutely no effect on your system's font-size.

I just got the latest Win10 updates from Microsoft.  It looks to be big one so I'll let you know what happens tomorrow when I restart my computer .

None of this works in Windows 11. What DOES work is select Dreamweaver.exe in the program folder, select the Compatability tab. Make sure nothing is checked. Select Change high DPI settings. Leave the first box unchecked. Select Override high DPI... System(Enhanced). It doesn't make the text as large as my old (lower resolution) monitor but it's readabe again. There may be a way to change it in your screen settings but I haven't tried that.

In the future, please start a new topic along with your version of Dreamweaver & operating system.
