I need to increase the size of the menu names and tool icons so I can see them. The standard download size is much too small for my eyes. Can this be done?
ps. I work on a 17" laptop
Thank you so much! This worked and I can see. I know my Photoshop is an old version. I don't use if often enough now to warrant buying a monthly version. Thanks! Becky
I am having a similar issue. The 'Tools' icons are about a quarter of the size of screen icons - way too small to be useful.
I have set the UI Font Size to 'Large', UI Scaling to '200%', and checked 'Scale UI To Font'. Restarted PS and nothing seems to have changed.
I tried the steps in the referenced article - NO CHANGE.
What can I do?!
I am using lastest updated version of Win 10 and renting PS (so it should be the latest version).
Photoshop should pick up the system UI scaling, and scale icons and UI elements accordingly. So what is it set to in Windows?
You're not supposed to do anything beyond that (as long as you have a reasonably current system).
...but if I change the 'system > display > scale and layout' to a higher setting (125%) EVERYTHING is bigger and screen 'real estate' is compromised. I just want the tool icons to be a similar size as the desktop screen icons. Right now the tool icons are about one-quarter the size of screen icons (not much bigger than text). It sounds like this is just not an option.
To give you an idea of how small the icons appear, when I put my mouse pointer on an icon, the pointer 'arrow' overlaps halfway onto other icons.
This worked for me too. Thank you.
The best, fastest, easy fix. Took me three days to find this, and thirty seconds to follow directions and fix the issue. THANK YOU!!!!!!
Thank you so much!! That worked perfectly!!
After much searching I just found the video below which shows how to change windows settings, top menu text is still on the small side and it makes all screen text larger but does help with icons; I changed my setting to 200 and may twiddle with it a bit but this does seem to help.
Navigate to where the actual application file(.exe) is,
right-click it and select properties,
choose the compatibility tab and select "Change high dpi settings" under the settings section,
in the next window, select the checkbox that says "High DPI scaling override",
and choose "System" from the drop down.
-Hit ok to save the changes, and then re-open Photoshop
Nope... The icons are still 33px by 26px.
