hi! i have recently bought Lenovo Y50 laptop with UHD screen display and some of my softwares are not working properly. When I use photoshop or similar softwares then the icons on screen appear too small to view properly. Will degrading the Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 help in the performance?
 
It will not help with icon's size, since the hardware is the same, and it can make it look worse if Lenovo did not release Windows 7 drivers for Y50.

Don't change resolution, change scaling - I've found that bumping the scaling to 125" makes looking at the screen much easier (with the expense of fitting less on it, of course)
