Hi @Marveleouscreator, There are some options under Edit > Preferences > Interface. How are your settings configured? Or are you talking about something else? If so, please try to explain again and we'll see if we can help!

You set the UI scaling factor in Windows, and Photoshop automatically picks that up. That's all, don't do anything else.

 

Leave the Preference setting on Auto. It only works in older operating systems that didn't support auto scaling.

I'm saying you can, by simply setting the scaling factor in Windows.

 

A 15 inch 4K laptop screen obviously needs 200% UI scaling all around, for any software you will use. So you set that in Windows Settings, and Photoshop picks that up, and scales the Photoshop UI 200%.

That looks normal to me - this is pretty much how it looks on my 27 inch 2560 x 1440 desktop monitor, it could almost be a screenshot from that.

 

Obviously, you need to sit closer to a small laptop screen than a big desktop monitor.

 

If the Windows scaling goes higher than 200%, Photoshop will still follow, in 25% increments.
