I cannot seem to increase the size of my menu icons or words, they are painfully small.

I am using windows.

The UI scaling in Windows is pure unadulterated crap! It is capable of 100% 150% or 200% scaling and is based on the O/S UI scaling. Adobe refuses to even acknowledge how bad it is.

Edit > Preferences > UI Scaling

Be careful what zoom amount you choose in Windows 10 display settings, too

Not only are the font sizes tiny, but the application window often opens as a small 1/4" box on my screen that I have to grab and resize by hand.

Given the impending doom of Apple's forthcoming OS, many Mac folks are thinking about switching to Windows. Adobe would be wise to catch this wave and fix the interface problems.

It is worth noting here that Photoshop and Illustrator are far superior in this regard and honestly, I don't see a tsunami of Mac users moving to Windows any time soon.

<< I don't see a tsunami of Mac users moving to Windows any time soon. >>

Lot of chatter on the non-Adobe design forums about this. Many designers already are Mac and Windows savvy.

Might not be a "tsunami" of users that switch, but probably enough to make a difference.

For sure. I'm one of them. I never understood the hate from either side.
