My PC settings have not changed since the last PS update nor changed in the last few years. All OS re-installed and all drivers up to date. PS at its 200% GUI is now larger than it used to be thus I get the message "Your tool options bar will be clipped because your monitor scale factor is too large". This message is given even if my PC desktop is set to a normal scaling of 100% or 125% and 150%. The GUI shown, is different than the previous PS GUI - the writing is clipped in the info-bubble, this never was the case.

If you're on 8.1, then Photoshop's preference is the only thing that will change its scaling. In Photoshop, go to Preferences > Interface... and se the UI Scaling to 100%.

I have copied Photoshop.exe 19.0.1 into the folder and renamed the PS19.1.0.exe to something else. PS is now working. Therefore there is a bug in the 19.1.0 exe code.
