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.

For Premiere Pro CC 2014 you’ll have to go to Compatibility Settings and disable ‘Display scaling on high DPI settings

Free Windows 10 upgrade!

I was pleasantly surprised after restarting my laptop to see a Windows icon on my system tray.

After clicking on it, I was greeted by an app windows stating that I am eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 once it is available. I’m currently running Windows 8.1, so I am guessing all Windows 8 users get the free upgrade.

All you have to do is to re click the reservation button on the lower left hand side of the app window. Mine is already gone since I clicked it already… and that’s basically it! Just wait for the update to be downloaded then viola!

Hooray for free stuff!
