    Fuzzy/Pixelated desktop icons since Windows 10 update (Version 1709)


    Hi All

    Having a bit of difficult since the latest Windows 10 updates - Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.125). Running 32-bit OS.

    Essentially my desktop icons appear to be blurred or pixelated. It's not everything, the start menu and explorer windows are clear for example.

    The most useful thing I've found is that it relates to EXTENDING to a second monitor. Above is a screenshot where I have my desktop extended to a second screen. Below is when I revert to a single display.

    Things I've tried:
    1. Various screen resolutions (both are on their native 1920 x 1200) and scaling options.
    2. Roll-back the update, but the 'Get Started' button would not do anything.
    3. System Restore - it failed.
    4. Uninstall Updates - the uninstall option wasn't available for all the updates.
    5. Uninstall Display Driver - Restart to re-install.
    6. 'Reset this PC' (remove everything), still occurs.

    I'm tempted to do a full format and re-install an earlier Windows 10 from CD, but hoping to avoid it.

    If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated.

    No suggestions, but I have had this problem since my initial installation of Win 10 Pro 64.
