How do I enlarge tiny menus and tools (CS5, Win 8.1)

Time:November 30

I installed Photoshop CS5 on a Windows 8.1 machine (3200x1800pixel resolution). The menus and tools are really tiny---about half the usual size (see image below). This also occurs in Adobe Bridge, but not Acrobat 9.0. No other programs are so affected (e.g. MS Word, Chrome web browser). I have tried lowering the computer's screen resolution without any effect on Photoshop CS5 (other programs appear enlarged then, but not CS5). I have not had any problem when this program was installed on a Windows 7 machine. Any ideas?

In the meantime, this is a workaround solution:

And yes, it is a bit of a silly situation.
