The Photoshop team welcomes your feedback on this experimental feature. Let us know what you think!
Photoshop user interface controls may appear small and hard-to-read on high-density displays. Also, on touch-enabled screens, you may have trouble clicking the smaller controls. 200% scaling solves this issue by doubling the size of the user interface.
Since the user interface elements increase in size by 200%, depending on the size and resolution of your display, you may need to adjust the layout of existing workspaces. For example, on a 1080 px screen at 200%, the Tools panel extends off the bottom of the screen. You can change to double-column orientation in order to fit the panel on the screen.
Note: This feature is only for Windows users. HiDPI on Mac has been available for high-density Retina displays since Photoshop CS6.
You may encounter some cosmetic issues while using this feature. While many Photoshop dialogs have been reworked so that they fit on the screen at 1080 px, viewing some dialogs (such as Smart Sharpen) completely may require you to collapse sections.
Disable 200% UI scaling
If you need to return to the default 100% scaling, do the following:
1. Select Preferences > Experimental Features.
2. Deselect Scale UI 200% For High-Density Displays (Windows Only).
3. Restart Photoshop.

just updated to PS2015CC, now at 200% If I open image resize, the box doesn't fit onto my Dell 12" so I can't alter the values to re-size my images, so back to tiny fonts for me for the time being..........
by the way Chris, I solved my file info problem by buying another program that allows scaling for caption information.
see the change log
Thanks for that John - unfortunately Microsoft not going to be much help as Im on a macbook and also I do most of my work 'on the go' so couldn't carry around a separate screen...wouldve been nice if they tested this a bit before releasing...CC subscriptions not going very far in the research and development budget!!
As I got my 4K monitor 2 weeks ago and got tired of messing around with other programs like AOL desktop and Quicken which scale worse than PS, I've set up a multiple monitor situation where my old 1920 x 1080 monitor is prime and the 4K is the secondary and I use it for monitoring the main picture in Lightroom
