Hi Everyone,

Do you have any suggestions on how to increase the menu bar size in Illustrator - latest version (Photoshop and Indesign as well) on a 4K monitor (used with a new macbookpro).  I was able to increase the size of the tool bar and floating palettes (Illustrator>Preferences>User Interface>UI Scaling) but the menu bar at the top remains miniscule.  This is a problem for me as I will be teaching these softwares remotely and my student will need to see what I am doing!  I hope I don't have to reduce the resolution as this defeates the purpose of buying a 4K monitor. I am ready to return my brand new 4K monitor if this can't be solved.

Since you will be streaming the screen, reducing the resolution of the monitor will actually be a very good idea on order to reduce the data and save on bandwidth.

Remote streaming something at High resolution to a student with low resolution or small screen may be painful. Test carefully, and issue system requirements to students.
