Hi Guys,

I have got a new Lenovo Y700 laptop and for some reason all the windows and applications on it are really small and have small text.
I have adjusted the DPI scale and text font size via control panel and Display but I'm still getting the problem.

Here are some screen dumps so you can see what I mean.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

The problem is with Adobe Premier (and other Adobe programs). For whatever reason the way Adobe designed the interfaces for their programs is not compatible with how Windows 10 manages scaling so on very high resolution monitors the menus are going to look tiny.

You can Google around for a fix similar to the following one. Whether or not it will work for you is a different matter, but at least it is worth a try.

You should also check if Adobe released a patch update that fixes the problem.
