I just installed the new Photoshop 2020 but the icons are so small on my 4k screen. Is there anywhere this can be dealt with as I've not found it? The options bar is just way too small to be comfortable to work with.

Hi

Try adjusting the UI scaling

I hope asking a follow-on question to this issue is within community etiquette.  I have the same problem.  For the life of me I cannot figure out how to make the icons bigger in the interface. I am specifically referring to the Adjustment Panel icons and the icons at the bottom of the history, layers, channels and paths panels. These icons are tiny! The layer thumbnails were very small too but I found the fix for that.

I have already tried going Edit->Preferences->Interface and changing UI Scaling to 200% and UI Font Size to Large, and then restarting. Didn't help.

This is on Windows 10 with a large monitor - Display Resolution of 2560 x 1440 (Recommended) and PS 22.0.1.  One suggestion made to me was to change "Scale and layout" to greater than 100% in Windows itself.
Windows Settings - Home - Display - Scale and layout.  While this does work, it adversely impacts every other application. I don't use PS enough compared to the other apps that I am willing to make that sacrifice.

 

I am hoping there is some way to make the icons themselves larger.

 

Thanks
