There is no UI scaling in CS6 for Windows.

You'll either have to

  • Get used to it
  • Decrease the resolution in Windows to continue with CS6
  • Join the Cloud and use the UI scaling feature in Photoshop CC.

An Icon has few pixels you can enlarge the a little bit however if you enlarge then really big the quality will not be good.  Also check the icon file well, some icon files contain  multiple versions of the Icon that have different  sizes..

If you mean the interface (tools etc) , and you are using the current CC version of Photoshop :

Go to Preferences , Interface, UI scaling. You have a choice of 100% or 200%.  Auto just picks one of those two, There is currently no "in between" setting

You will need to restart Photoshop after clicking OK.

There is a registry hack that seems to work:
