I need help changing the resolution that Photoshop launches in. I got the free trial to see if it would work well on my computer and when I launched PS it opened looking like this. Could someone please help me fix this problem so that Photoshop looks like normal. It would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like 200% UI scaling is enabled because of your display resolution (high dpi).

What size display are you using? Are you on a Windows tablet (Surface Pro)?
What OS version are you using?

The display is set at 1920x1080 and I'm on an Alienware alpha. In the picture it shows I'm on Windows 8.1 but I've upgraded to Windows 10 since then.

Go into Photoshop's preferences, and turn off the 200% UI scaling option.
