I have CS2 and the tool bar is too small. I have tried Preferences, General, and made the font to Large but nothing changed even after turning it off and pack on. I have contacted Adobe screen share help line and they couldn't help.

Right click on an empty area on your widows desktop and click on new then shortcut.

then Browse

browse  to your  CS2 Photoshop.exe in Program Files (x86) \Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\ highlight it and click on OK

CS3 is the closest one I have installed. Then click on next in create shortcut

Type a name for the shortcur and click  Finish

That should create a startup shortcut on your desktop for CS2, 

Right click on that shortcut and click on Properties

then click on the Compatibility tab  in Photoshop Cs2 Properties

Tried this for CS2 on Windows 10 and it didn't work and neither does the registry method. 😞

Use Windows Magnifier.  Hold down Windows Key +  plus sign.

Windows key + + (plus sign), increases text size.

Windows key + - (minus sign), reduces text size.

Ctrl + Alt + i inverts colors.

Windows key + ESC closes Magnifier.
