I need to increase the size of the menu names and tool icons so I can see them. The standard download size is much too small for my eyes. Can this be done?

ps. I work on a 17" laptop

Under the Photoshop Preferences/Interface you can set the UI scale to Automatic/ 100%/200%. Try one of those and check. Second option: when you've Photoshop CC use the search function instead of the icons, just press Ctrl/Cmd + F and type down the tool you need, it will be activated.UI.jpg

I'm using CS 5 and the tools are sooo teeny tiny I can't read them!

Is there hope for this version?

CS 5 and I changed the UI interface to high, but it didn't do much at all.  I would think Adobe would help to keep us using and enjoying their product, because the inability to SEE IT makes us consider the other options!  After all, we ARE VISUAL PEOPLE!!!

CS5 is ten years old. It had no support for UI scaling, because high resolution screens that required it, did not exist at that time.

 

UI scaling support was added as those screens started to hit the market. Photoshop has supported it ever since. But you are ten years behind.

If  you are on a Mac, you can turn on your Accessibility Zoom settings and zoom in to a level that's comfortable for you. Look under your System Preferences for Accessability, and turn on Zoom.
