    Any way to get better ui scaling?


    Everything is so small, icons, text, firefox menus, firefox webpages, windows ui elements... So I set scaling to 125% and these problems get fixed. However, unlike in windows 8.1, now steam among a few other things is completely messed up. Their interface get huge and buggy. Is there any way to fix this?


    My resolution is 1920x1080, 24inch screen.

    I have the same problems, Since setting scaling UI to 125% whenever I open Baldurs gate in full screen mode it expands off the screen. Tried to reset to 100% and Baldurs gate stayed huge cant reset that now.

    This is such retarded stuff, dumbasses at Microsoft can screw up a wet dream.

    Fixing DPI scaling + blurry text/user interfaces

    I had the same problem. I use a 46" VIZIO 1080p HDTV as my monitor too for the past few years. Never had any scaling, resolution, or text issues with Windows 7. When I first installed Windows 10 and scaled @ 125%, it looked like garbage. Same thing with 150% (Which was actually recommended by Windows).

    What you are going to have to do is go to 'display settings' and set the 'scaling to 100%' for the most crisp resolution for the desktop and apps. Don't worry, you will get used to it and it will look more modern, clearer, and crisp once your eyes adjust.

    After you change it to 100% scaling, go into the 'advanced display settings', click 'advanced sizing of text and other items', scroll down to 'Change only the text size', and make 'Title Bars' 11 point font.

    Click 'Apply', on the left hand side of the screen you will see 'Adjust ClearType Text', click that, make sure 'ClearType' is checked to 'on', then hit next and continue the process of selecting what looks the best and finish adjusting ClearType. Click 'OK' and exit the display settings.

    Go to the desktop, hover your mouse somewhere on the desktop, hold 'Ctrl' and scroll your mouse wheel up and down until the icons are a good size for you.

    Then open up your web browser (Edge/Chrome/Firefox, etc.) go to Settings, and make sure the zoom is at 125% for all pages. In Chrome you must go to the advanced settings and select 125%.

    Restart your PC. It may take a day or so to get used to it, but it looks fine. Program UI's don't look funky anymore.

Blurry 2nd Monitor when using different DPI scaling
My main monitor is 2560x1440 and my 2nd monitor is 1920x1080. When I set both to 100% or 125% scaling they both look fine. If I set my main monitor to 125% and my 2nd monitor to 100% the 2nd monitor is blurry. Is anyone else having this problem?...
