What do I have to do to get my icons to be sized normally?

I have a screenshot attached of what SolidWorks looks like on my laptop. It has a 3840x2160 screen, which I'm assuming is why the icons and text are so small and the ribbon tabs are getting cut off. How do I get my icons to be normal sized (by normal sized I mean looking like they do in this screenshot)? Also, I've tried doing what this support page says and going into compatibility mode for Windows 8 and disabling display scaling on high DPI settings. None of these changed anything. One of the main reasons I got this laptop was to use SolidWorks, and it is really hard to try and get anything done with the UI looking like this.

 

Update:

So it turns out that nothing I tried before even mattered - All I had to do was go to the pull down options menu (two icons to the right of the rebuild [red & green button in the top of my screenshot]), select button size, and then select optimize spacing for touch.
