    Photoshop menu text too small on large monitor

    Hi there
    I love using Adobe photo shop (CS6 extended) but a major irritant is that the Adobe menu text always seems too small. (The Photoshop menus - not Windows). Has anyone any idea how to make the text size bigger.

    Here's a sample of what I mean - the second image shows the text in the drop down fine -- deliberately made bigger to explain what I mean - but the Photoshop titles are tiny and hard to read -- and the 3rd image is what you see when using Bridge -- The image browser built into photo shop -- the text is TINY.

    I found these suggestions :

    To change the font size for Photoshop's user interface, simply go up to the Photoshop menu at the top of the screen (Edit menu in Windows), choose Preferences, and then choose General. You'll see an option near the top of the Preferences dialog box called UI Font Size. Simply select a different size from the menu.

    You'll need to close out of Photoshop and restart it for the change to take effect.


    In CS6, "Font Preview Size" is now located under the "Type" menu item, not under "Type" in the CS6 Preferences.

    I hope they are what you need.
