    Font scaling issues are back after the recent update!

    If I remember correctly, the scaling issues with non-high-DPI-aware Windows applications being displayed as "blurry" were fixed in 1511 update (or around that time). My laptop has been set for 200% scaling and everything was working perfectly since 1511.

    The recent update broke all that. Most of built-in MSC applets (EventViewer, ComputerManagement etc.) are now displayed with pixelated text and some other programs (WinMerge, for example) are also displaying pixelated text under 200% scaling. This began after the most recent update.

    It seems to look different from what we saw before, though. Before 1511 everything was displayed "fuzzy" (i.e scaled and then smoothed), now it appears that there's no smoothing, just straight scaling.

    So, what's going on? Why does Microsoft keep breaking their scaling? Is there a new setting/option to change here to get back to normal behavior?

    Here is "before" and "after" pictures from a computer that was just updated. The machine is set up for 125% scaling.

    My previous comment about the nature of the scaling being different is incorrect. The problem actually looks the same as it looked before 1511 update.
