Windows 7 added an OS control for changing the screen DPI to make the user interface larger on large monitors with tiny pixels. I want this to work with Photoshop Elements (Editor and Organizer).

200% scaling for HiDPI monitors is supported in Elements 13 on displays with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 or greater.

The Surface Pro 3 has a monitor resolution of 2160 x 1440 (the vertical height is too short to support 200% scaling of some dialogs). The Elements team is looking into the possibility of supporting 200% on a Surface Pro 3.
