Photoshop – Making It Easier to View

While I appreciate having my HD display on my laptop, when it comes to using many of the Adobe products including Photoshop, the fonts and icons are very small.  I’m testing out a couple of suggestions to make everything a bit larger.

Here’s one of the first things I did.

1. Edit Preferences – Interface – change the font to Large from Medium.

PS-change-font-size

2. Screen Resolution – Another thing you can do which helps a bit is to change your screen resolution – I changed mine to a lower resolution and the icons got a bit larger – it’s not a big difference, but helps a bit. On my desktop, 1680 x 1050 looks good, but on my laptop, things are still small.

3. Windows Key + = Magnifier view – not perfect but also helps. Click windows key and minus to get back to regular view.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a real solution to this problem. A lot of people have complained about it – even with the new CC online versions.

Here is more discussion about this topic.
