The two UI scaling options (100% or 200%) are inadequate on modern desktop monitors (4k, etc.). They work great on older monitors (100%), or on small, portable devices (200%), but not on everything else.

Please add support for all additional Windows system scaling options in priority order: 150%, 125%, everything else.

Windows 7, 8 and prior versions of Windows 10 will only support 100% and 200% - as the continuously scalable user interface requires APIs only available in Creators Edition
How come Illustrator was able to support other scale-options even before windows 10?

Looking forward to it Jeffrey. Teaching Ps on full HD flatscreens is a pain with either 100% or  200%.

Please add scaling support.  This is really disappointing.

I also need the 150% scaling because 100% is too small and 200% is too big. Please help with this. Thanks Danish.

The whole UI scaling issue is making both Microsoft and Adobe look like amateur programmers. Windows OS and Adobe apps now have a mixture of tiny UI elements, oversize menus, different scaling on different monitors. I've spent hours trying to fix this mess with a combination of Windows settings, Adobe preferences, even registry tweaks - seems like each setting change affects something else. Do you guys even use your own software?

Still waiting Adobe. Not sure why you can't add this option to Photoshop as you have with Illustrator and InDesign...

I am using Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 in my Lenovo Ideapad 320 laptop.
 But in this App, the app's font size is very small like toolbar, in all different windows. So, how to increase the font size of the Photoshop app..? The font size was not visible.

Any Idea when you all are going to fix the UI Scaling issue that PS cc 2017 has? ( 100% too small, 200% too bib and auto just defaults to 200%) Folks have been asking since 2015 for atleast a third option of 150%....

If it were an issue on the side of Microsoft why then can you force PS into 125% by overriding the high DPI scalling behaviour?

Agreed, it's blurry but I at least I don't have to skrew up my face to make out the UI. I have a hard time believing this to be an issue with Windows.

@JeffreyTranberry really? Three years have past and I still have to rely on manual DPI overrides.
