    I did that, it was already set to the best (clearest) settings.

    This is really aggravating. Never had this problem in Windows before. That's what makes me think it is a driver issue. Every Windows OS I ever used (from Windows 95 - 8.1) installed appropriate drivers (drivers came pre-installed). Now, with Windows 10 "pure" install, I have this problem.

    No, Probe, this most probably isn't a driver issue! Nor is it a cleartype issue. Please, follow the recommendations above (changing the HKCU registry entries).

    Best regards, and good luck!

    Thank you. I've been using this solution for 3 days and this is the ONLY solution that fixed the problem for me.

    Other things I tried that did not work:
    - Changing/uninstalling drivers (drivers are not the issue).
    - Making the above .cmd file and adding it to startup items or the task scheduler (would only work every OTHER time I logged in).
    - I couldn't even download the "windows10_dpi_blurry_fix.xpexplorer.com" .exe as I get a "server not found" message every time (plus I don't want to run an strange.exe file) even if no virus are detected.

    The link works fine (something is interfering in your system, an antivirus, browser extension etc.) and the .exe is perfectly safe. All programs you/we download are "strange .exe's" anyway.

    The xpexplorer exe is a godsend. It worked on my laptop. I tried the other remedies such as ClearType etc.. all doesn't work.

    Good workaround. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks @EShirou for the tip, looks great but I have Win 10 Home for the moment and no access to gpedit, any workaround?

    Also, do you have the same kind of hack for multiple monitors with different DPI scaling for each?
    It's an absolute nightmare here. I am using a laptop which I would like 125% scaling for and an external monitor for which 100% is fine. Most app change size between the two (very weird), but there are issues with some that will preserve main monitor scaling on secondary one (I'm looking at you PowerPoint 2016!) and therefore look huge on the external large display with extra scaling.

    I made a scheduled task in Task Scheduler, scheduled at log in (and run with highest privileges,
    though I don't know if it is necessary).
