Photoshop CS6 looks pixelated on Mac Retina screen

I have Photoshop CS6 running on a MacBook Pro with a 15" retina screen. By default it runs in low-resolution, which makes everything pixelated. When I right-click on the app and go to "Get Info" I see an option to "Open in Low Resolution". When I uncheck it Photoshop opens in high-resolution and it looks beautiful, but it's unusable: I can't click on any of the tools, the sidebars, or anything. So I bring it back to low-resolution and everything works well, except that it looks pixelated again.

I have the 13.0 update (the latest one) and there aren't any additional updates according to Photoshop.

Is there any way to have Photoshop CS6 run in high-resolution?

Thank you very much!

Did you download the 13.0.6 update from the adobe ftp server like i described above?

 

Even when photoshop cs6 was the current photoshop. lots of users including myself had to download the 13.0.6 update, since for whatever reason sometimes on a certain computer it just wouldn't show in updates.

Thank you for your screens. If the pasted screenprint is genuine, this explains that v10.0.6 already supports high definition monitors.
The problem, however, is that this version is not available to me. I can't update from 13.0 to 13.0.6 anymore. In mid-October 2022, after replacing the SSD, it was no longer even possible to activate Ps CS6 online. Only the complicated procedure of activating version 13.0 in offline mode remained.
And it is not due to the lack of a proper internet connection or exceeding the allowed number of activations. Adobe simply blocks these possibilities and then tricks you into purchasing new software on a subscription basis. It's not fair, as my CS6 license is perpetual.

Glad you got CS6 going, but keep in mind MacOS 10.15 going forward will not allow CS6 to be installed.
