I have poor vision and I can not really read the small type in the program, for instance the file names on the tabs, or the options in the file-->open or the other options on the pulldown menus, options in the css editor etc. . 

 

The content in the windows is ok for instance I can read the html coding and the preview window.  I don't want to change my display settings of my computer display.

-Running the Latest version of Dreamweaver Creative Cloud.

-Windows 10 operating system.

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

  1. In Windows start, type Display Settings and open it.
  2. Scroll down to Scale and Layout
  3. Change the size of text, apps and other items to something more comfortable (175%).
  4. If necessary, reduce your screen resolution, too.

This does not change the display type in the menu bar. How do you enlarge that part? Increasing the size as you suggest makes EVERYTHING bigger. It even blocks one's view of the work area. I just want the teensy tiny menu bar to be readable. What's the secret for that, if you please? Thx.

@gsdcraig,

Which version of DW?

Which operating system?

 

Older versions of Adobe apps are not HI-DPI aware. 

Your operating system's display settings control how big/small elements appear on screen.
