Windows 10: FIX | Windows 10 Blurry Text and Windows! Solved

    @EShirou is right and I rep'd him for it. Although @Probe is trying to help, he is giving incorrect information. Too add to the weirdness that windows does for dpi scaling and anti-aliasing, there is one other issue. Some of the icons, system messages, etc have been updated to look better (vector images is my guess) for 2k and 4k (high dpi) displays. While others are still the same from Vista.... Look at the icons difference when in 'settings" vs"control panel."

    If your text is blurry just run the cleartype wizard and pick all the examples that look the best. That should fix it. It did for me.
    I tried that wizard, didn't help. Only some windows look blurry, especially, say for instance the Comodo widget and Comodo screen when you "open" it. (Not to pick on Comodo, I am just using them as an example, there are quite a few other software windows that do this). The text from my browser, (CyberFox), notepad etc. is crystal sharp. It's just mainly other windows from additional software. Even Tbird email program is crystal clear. I just don't get it unless its a driver issue, since Windows 10 wants to run the driver show.

    @dadragon2k3
    Agreed, "Settings" does look crystal sharp where "Control Panel" is blurry. Wish this would get straightened out, maybe in an upcoming update? Changing DPI from 100 to a large type of 125 always worked in Win 95 to 8.1, but not Windows 10.

    Don't use this if you don't like exe starting with your system, taking resources, etc. also it might be unsafe. I found this a while ago somewhere via google, but it said to put this into autostart, sadly it doesn't work with autostart if you don't sign out after you login and the login again (and sometimes it doesn't work at all).
    Thanks EShirou for the valuable info. The only thing I'm not sure of, does it go to:

    1. Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) or
    2. User Configuration / Windows Settings / Scripts (Logon/Logoff)?

    From your post probably 2, but best to be 100% sure of this for anyone that might use it.

    I have put it in User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts (Logon/Logoff)

    also I haven't figure out yet if logout will do after you gpedit this or do you have to reboot... so some trail end error might be required xD I think the first time you login to your account it installs the script into registry, but you see no changes, then you have to reboot/re-login and then it should be applied. I had a situation once, because I was testing something, that after I removed that script from gpedit and I reboot my pc the fonts ware still crystal clear, but then I made a second reboot and they ware back to being blurry.

    The author of the tool in the first post, mentions that Windows deletes/resets the DPI registry settings after every second reboot, so that is probably related with your questions.

    I'm afraid the script solution doesn't work for me, I'll have to revert to the tool which seems perfectly legit (and I've tested it already - works as intended) and nothing more than a wrapper for the DPI registry changes that need to be applied on every restart, because Windows deletes them.

    (update: indeed, "reinstalled" the tool and the blurriness is gone once again)

    I created an account just to say thank you so much. I created the CMD file and put in my c:\ . I then pointed to it with the user and computer logon script and my computer now boots up crystal clear every time. The tool also worked but wouldn't stick. You are the man!

    Thanks a lot, EShirou!

    It works for me, too, very well! But I really need only the following line (see below):

    Code:
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v DpiScalingVer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00001018 /f
    All the best, and go ahead with your recommendations!

    After you apply your desired font size in windows settings (like 125% dpi, I use this with 125%) > Open notepad, paste this into it:

    Code:
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v DpiScalingVer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00001018 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Win8DpiScaling /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v LogPixels /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000078 /f
    then save it as <yourname>.cmd somewhere on your HDD > open local ground policy editor (gpedit.msc from search bar) > In user config (im translating this from my language so there might be little translation differences) > go to Windows Settings > Scripts (login/logout) > In the window on the right double click on Login to open it (because we want this to be applied every time you login) > in Scripts tab, select Add > then in new window select Browser > navigate to where you saved your cmd file and select it > then just press Ok > Apply > Ok > Then sign out/reboot your pc > Login to your account for the first time after adding this script so it will be applied > then if it will not work, Sign out/reboot again and from now on it should work every time (works for me).

    I noticed that fonts are much more crystal clear everywhere now, it seems MS messed up badly with dpi in windows 10... In some places font is only 5~10% blurry (right mouse click menu, display settings etc.) while in others (device manager for example) is 100% blurry. After this I have crystal clear fonts everywhere :3

    Please explain


    Can someone please explain the three settings?

    Code:
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v DpiScalingVer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00001018 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Win8DpiScaling /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v LogPixels /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000078 /f
    I understand these two:
    Code:
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Win8DpiScaling /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v LogPixels /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000078 /f
    First is related to flipping Win 8 DPI scaling on. Second one is related to DPI setting. So 60 is something like 100%, 78 is 125% and so on.

    Please explain first one.

    Also, I tried these settings, WinAero Tweaker and Xplorer software, but my blurry text problem is not solved. As of 8/19 my PC is fully updated with all windows updates.

    "78" in HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\LogPixels is hex code and means 120 (dpi) in decimal code. 96 dpi - in decimal code - is standard of Win 10, so 120 dpi means 125% scaling.

    "1000" in hex code means 4096 in decimal code. "1018" in hex code means 4120 in decimal code. But I don't know why there is a 4000 (in decimal code), nor the meaning of ..\DpiScalingVer.
