    gunnerx1337

      Photoshop CS6. Works fine on my windows 7 PC. On my Windows 10 PC everything is just very small and zoomed out. Screenshot --> http://prntscr.com/eebwr6

      As you can see compared to the taskbar everything is very small. I have had this problem with some other problems but have been able to manually edit the display settings and correct it. However I cannot find it photoshop. This is a 4K laptop, which I suspect may have something todo with the issue.

          It certainly does. The high resolution display means the screen pixels are much smaller, in order to cram in that much more of them.

           

          UI scaling for high density displays was introduced in CC 2014. When CS6 was released these displays didn't exist.

           

          The image, however, displays correctly in any case. At 100% one image pixel is mapped to exactly one screen pixel. This is how it has to be. With small screen pixels, the image gets smaller.

           

          What confuses people is that non-critical, consumer-oriented viewers and browsers scale up automatically when such a display is detected. Photoshop, as a professional-grade application, can't do that. It has to display accurately.

              There is an unofficial hack floating around, but the downside is that it scales everything, so the image no longer displays accurately.

               

              But no, you need to upgrade Photoshop. The reality of life is that one upgrade often brings others with it.
