Is it possible to adjust Lightroom 4.4 so the user interface is usable on a 15" UHD (a.k.a 4K) display?

There only appears to be a setting for Font size: enter image description here

Basically I don't think you can do what you are trying to do. There are some decent workarounds that you can read about here on a thread about similar functionality in Photoshop(https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1323412).

Lightroom 4.3 added OSX Retina support, then in the 5 Beta Preview they added HiDPI Windows support. This includes automatic scaling of certain aspects. There is no HiDPI setting as it just determines this on it's own as necessary. Because of that I don't think you will find that 4.4 has the option.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm not convinced that this is a Microsoft issue, given there has been a method to query the physical size, and DPI since at least NT4, when I was taught to always query it when studying at University... \$\endgroup\$ Aug 17, 2014 at 6:14
