Hi,

I'm a newbie to the forum.  I just put my copy of PE 6.0 on my new computer that is running Win 10.  The fonts and menu picks are minuscule.  I found a set of instructions for  using a manifest file, but that didn't work, it caused a "MSVCR80.DLL Missing" error.  (A search reveals that there are multiple MSVCR80.DLL present on the computer.)   I believe the instructions were for Photoshop CS6.

I do not wish to upgrade as this version works just fine for my very limited needs, and has worked well for me with my Win 7 computer.  My current Win 10 computer is an MS Service Pro, which has a small screen.  I have a large screen attached to it. 

I have rather sever eye problems (Macular Degeneration), so the small fonts and menu items make use of the program impossible.  Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

In windows 10 the operating system can take care of that without having to change the screen resolution.

Just go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0

Find the PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe, right click on it and click on Properties.

Then under the Compatibility tab click Change High DPI Settings and in the next dialog windows click Override High DPI Scaling Behavior and set the dropdown to System.

Bob,

No doubt your new laptop has a high resolution display which is at the root cause of the issue with this old version of PSE.

See if you can change the appearance of the screen(s) so that you can utilize the program.

Found it; marked it as correct.  Previous answer was marked as correct.  I don't know why.  Thanks again.
