Windows 7: Windows 10 changed my display??

Windows 10 changed my display??

I came home from work and discovered that my computer had been updated to Windows 10. Pretty underhanded move on Microsoft's part, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. Everything seems fine except now when I open Photoshop everything is so tiny I can't really work in the program anymore. Attached is a screenshot of what I mean.

I have checked the display settings and they are all correct for my monitors, but as you can see it's still to dang small. Also, whenever I hover over the menu items and try to choose one of them from the pop out list it flicks to the next menu item and I can't choose what I wanted. It's very annoying and I can't figure out what's wrong.

I joined just to ask about this, because if I can't find a solution I'm going back to Windows 7.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Looks like you missed an automatic scheduling :)

I imagine you can blame yourself for not changing your update setting to Exclude recommended updates so it's not really that underhanded.

Either way the best thing about win-10 upgrades is it really needs a clean install of 10 probably to workout the first found bugs,
Then the really fun part is the bugs to come

Change your windows update settings as Mike suggested.

Remove the Windows 10 updates or install the GWX Control Panel.

Never worry about it again.
