This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop cc 2017: UI scaling needs 150%

I am running Photoshop CC 2016 under 64-bit Windows 7, on a 1920 x 1080 monitor. If I choose either the 100% or Auto setting with Large fonts for the Interface, nothing is readable and it makes it impossible to see any of the lists, fonts or menu items. If I choose 200%, even with small fonts selected, everything is way too big and my image is way too small to work on for layer effects to be seen correctly. I would really like to be able to set a Custom percentage, or alternatively, be offered a 150% option. There are apparently a lot of people with the same problem, offering workarounds that simply don't work for me. Please FIX this!!!!

Update: As of 10/25/17, we are closing this program to new applicants. We have a large number of participants already. Thank you to everyone who registered!

The Photoshop team has been listening to your many requests for better scaling options on Windows, and we’re happy to announce that we are ready for beta testing on this feature. Because of the large scale changes involved in this feature, we want to make sure people have the opportunity to test it out before it’s released.
All Windows customers are welcome to join and test, but please note that you will need to have Windows 10 Creators Edition installed in order to use the new continuously scalable user interface and per-monitor scaling. Windows 7, 8 and prior versions of Windows 10 will only support 100% and 200% - as the continuously scalable user interface requires APIs only available in Creators Edition.
