Fixing Photoshop Miniscule Menu Problem on High DPI Display

Last year I got a brand new Microsoft Surface Book laptop. It's a thing of beauty and I love it.

However, the high resolution screen (3000x2000) caused some problems with my non-CC version of Photoshop. It installed, sure - but the menus and dialog boxes were so small I couldn't actually read them.

Of course, Adobe's recommendation is to upgrade to CC, which I refuse to do on account of already paying a LOT of money for the entire Master Collection a few years ago, which does everything I need it to do and way, way more.

Anyway, I found this solution via Dan Antonielli which works perfectly:

Thanks Dan! I can see again!
