Microsoft Surface high resolution scaling fix by Dan Antonielli

Dan provides excellent solution for scaling issues with some Adobe Creative Cloud apps under new Windows and latest high resolution laptops / tablets. Ironically this fix works not only for Adobe, but for many other older applications unaware of high DPI displays:


Thank you Dan!

  1. Looks like one of the latest Microsoft updates knocks off "PreferExternalManifest" registry entry. You will need to re-create it following steps below:

    Press Windows Button + R, type “regedit”, and then click OK.

    Navigate to the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > SideBySide

    Right-click, select NEW > DWORD (32 bit) Value

    Type PreferExternalManifest, and then press ENTER.

    Right-click PreferExternalManifest, and then click Modify.

    Enter Value Data 1 and select Decimal.

    Click OK. Exit Registry Editor.
