User Interface scaling on Windows

Having difficulty with the size of the user interface in Windows, with InDesign, compared with Photoshop and Illustrator. To me, I must congratulate the Illustrator team for they created the most flexible interface in terms of size. I have a 27" 2560 x 1400 monitor and I'm looking forward to a 4K monitor (no chance of getting on a Mac with 5K here!). But I'm worried I will need to use spectacles to read the user interface? 


I tried experimenting with the Preferences for scaling (scale to lower or higher something) to no avail. From the little I understood, at least on Windows, the implementation would be dependent on Windows's own UI scaling? Which I have changed to 124% (less than 125% according to my last reading, here, was the magic number to adjust it to). Even if I changed to > 100% in Windows (10), InDesign UI seems independent of any system settings? 

My humble searches so far across the internet have not turned out much 😞


Any help is appreciated.
