So I have downloaded Photoshop 2015 for my Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop. After opening it, everything seemed to be 'bigger'. Most things in the program do not seem to fit. I have also recently updated to Windows 10. Are there any solutions available?

Check your UI scaling preference:

Hi Cris,

Specifically, set your UI Scaling to 100%.  You can access the dialog that Steve posted by clicking Edit > Preferences > Interface.

hi, I've done as you suggested and though it did make things smaller, now i think they are TOO small (sorry for my pickiness lol),I was wondering if there was a way to set my scaling to somewhere between 100 and 200% ?

No, at this time the only options on Windows are 100% and 200%. We are continuing to work with Microsoft on the issues needed to allow more flexible UI scaling.

To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut: Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you startPhotoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferencesfiles are created the next time you start Photoshop.
