Here’s a Windows hack to fix the DPI scaling feature issue with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Simply add this registry entry in this .reg file or add it manually with the following:

Then simply copy paste the manifest file(s) for either Photoshop, Premiere and/or Illustrator into their respective installation directory; then restart the application to see the result. I tested this on Windows 10 Home with the anniversary update.

Open cmd.exe here for NodeJS

Since NodeJS works off the Windows’ shell (command prompt) I find myself needing to open the terminal (cmd.exe) more often now. Here are several ways I open the Command Prompt in a specific location within Windows Explorer on Windows 10.

method 1: simply navigate to the desired folder within Windows Explorer and type cmd in the location bar then press enter.

method 2: Navigate to the desired location within Windows Explorer then press (ALT F, M) on your keyboard. This will give you an option to open either an Elevated Command window (ALT F, M, A) or a normal Command window (ALT F, M P).

method 3: hold shift on your keyboard then right click within the desired folder location within Windows Explorer. AN “Open Command window here” context menu will appear.
