    Everything blurry in 1080p; text, icons, pics, videos

    I installed windows 10 directly from microsoft yesterday rather than waiting for it to roll out to me, and as soon as it finished something was wrong. It was set to 1080p but the edges of the screen were cut off and EVERYTHING was blurry as if it were in 420p. I used Catalyst to resize my screen so it fit, but everything was still blurry. I've looked online tirelessly and found people with similar, but not the same, problem that fixed theirs by adjusting the slider that resized everything in the desktop but I've tried 100%, 125%, and 150% and everything still looks awful. I have the latest AMD drivers for my card (R9 280) but it won't fix. It's not just text, it's pictures, games, and especially desktop icons. I'm using a 1080p LCD TV as my monitor, which someone on the Microsoft forum said was the problem, but it worked just fine in Windows 8. Can anyone help?

    I've searched through the web and I found this great tool that fixed the blurry text that I had after changing my scale to 125% in Windows 10.

    Simply download the file from the following page, run it and and choose the Windows 8.1 DPI scaling option and the required scaling level and then restart your computer/laptop.

    Direct link to the tool: http://www.xpexplorer.com/installers...10_DPI_FIX.exe

    Have a great day
