    I also had a problem with blurry text on Windows 10 but I seem to have solved the problem-- Go to Control Panel (not Settings) and select Display. Notice the section that says "Select Size of Items" and select "set a custom scaling level". Even though it says not recommended I selected it and set it for 125. No more blurry text on sites that were blurry.

    For blurry fonts in specific apps. menus, toolbars, etc. see this:
    From
    A simple solution for blurry fonts in Windows 10 : Windows10
    For those who still have blurry font problem:
    I just discovered a way to remove it.
    1) Right click on the application you want to correct the fonts of, select Properties
    2) Go to Compatibility tab.
    3) Under Settings section, check Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
    4) Apply and close the window.

    If your problem shows up only on specific software, follow the above with each application. If it is a problem with Windows File Explorer & all apps, the System Settings scaling is probably the issue, so review the thread for other advice.

    Yes, this seems to resolve the issue with the latest version of Windows 10 (10.0.10586). I spoke with the developer of the Windows 10 DPI FIX Utility and he said he's looking into it. I'll post back when I get more news.

    The developer replied and said that the method described by abcdl works for some people. But for others it doesn't for some reason. If the Windows custom scaling doesn't work for you, you can always try the utility by XPexplorer.com which definitely works:

    This xplorer fix kind of works. I have a laptop with an external monitor (HDMI connection). The app solves the blurriness on the external monitor but makes the screen of the laptop very small (100% scaling, which is really too small for comfort), and since it overrides the normal Windows 10 scaling, I can't view my laptop screen normally without disabling the app and restarting the computer. I do tend to use both setups regularly: the laptop alone, and connected to an external monitor. Might it work better with a different screen? What else can I try?

    I installed the exe but now want to remove it completely. I tried the reboot twice method but that didn't work. All my icons and text are ridiculously small on my 4k tv, but there's nowhere to uninstall the exe.

    How do I get rid of this?

    How To Uninstall the XPE Windows 10 DPI Fix

    Read these instructions first. If you do not understand something, ask a tech friend to help out.

    First, Create a System Restore Point: Create a system restore point - Windows Help -

    1. Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\XPE Windows 10 DPI Fix

    2. Run (double click): XPEWindows10_DPI_FIX

    3. Select "Use Windows 10 Default DPI Scaling" and Click Apply.

    4. Close the program.

    5. This step is Optional, but will completely remove the utility:
    Delete the contents of the folder (or the entire folder) :
    C:\Program Files (x86)\XPE Windows 10 DPI Fix
    These are the ONLY files you will be deleting:
    MSVBVM60.dll
    xpe_dpi_settings.inf
    XPEWindows10_DPI.exe
    XPEWindows10_DPI_FIX.exe

    Or you can just delete the folder named "XPE Windows 10 DPI Fix".
    Remember, do NOT delete the root folder: Program Files (x86)

    6. RIGHT Click on your Desktop and Select "Display Settings".
    Click on "Turn Off Custom Scaling and Sign Out"
    If this isn't there, just proceed to next step.

    7. Reboot Twice.

    8. RIGHT Click on your Desktop and Select "Display Settings"
    and Use the slider to "change the size of Text, Apps and Other Items" to the size you would like.

    9. Reboot one last time.

    Done.

    Sorry to dig this up. I've messed with the registry hack but found it just made images blurry instead of the text. This problem has actually been an issue for me since windows 8, 8.1 and now 10.

    In 8/8.1 I was able to fix it by setting the scale to 102% or something very small. I just messed around with those registry values and found:

    1) Any changes to DpiScalingVer are reverted on logout/reboot. You must logout/login after making any changes to these values for it to take full effect.
    2) By setting Win8DpiScaling to 1, I was able to mess around with the LogPixels value. Coincidently, setting LogPixels to 0x67 (decimal 103) gives what appears to be about the same result as I got with 8.1. Still not prefect, but much better than the 100/125 settings.

    This is on a laptop 15" 1080p LCD screen FWIW

    This fix/utility works well on laptop screens, improving contrast (makes fonts blacker, instead of dark grey) among other things. Has the weird effect of reducing the zoom on Edge to 50%, but when returned to 100% it still seems better than before.
