    FIX | Windows 10 Blurry Text and Windows!


    I've searched through the web and I found this great tool that fixed the blurry text that I had after changing my scale to 125% in Windows 10.



    Simply download the file from the following page, run it and and choose the Windows 8.1 DPI scaling option and the required scaling level and then restart your computer/laptop.

    Tool website: Windows 10 DPI blurry / fuzzy text font fix - XP Explorer

    Direct link to the tool: http://www.xpexplorer.com/installers...10_DPI_FIX.exe

    Have a great day

    Excellent!!

    I have already discovered it a few minutes ago, I have applied it on my system and it has resolved the blurry text problem I was facing!

    Here are a few screenshots after the application of this utility:

    On the second screenshot you can see part of the Event Viewer window magnified at 400%. It looks GREAT!!

    From the site of this utility I have also learnt that the scaling of the text was functioning flawlessly even until Windows 8.1!! I come from Windows 7 Home Premium - never used 8 or 8.1 - and I was under the impression that Win 7 was the last OS in which text displayed sharply on High DPI monitors. It is a big disappointment to discover that Microsoft has messed this up SO badly in Windows 10.

    Now, the only other thing I am eagerly expecting is someone to update or create a utility which will enable Group Policy on Windows 10 Home. Something like this. I have tried it - because I want to remove OneDrive completely- but even though it installs and runs, OneDrive does not appear on the list.

    Thank you

    As much as I would love to have a fix for this problem (had to go back to 100% for now), I never would use a exe for this which also needs to be run every windows restart.

    I agree


    I would NOT use a third party software to correct this. It even looks tacky. Has to be a driver issue I think. I am having this problem now, but will NOT use additional software to "fix" it. Anyone else having problems with some windows showing up blurry?

    Well, whatever it suits you, people

    I do not have any problem in using it, for days now.
    The problem that I was facing is described in the link I give on my post #2, above. In my case it was not a driver issue. Unfortunately it is the way Microsoft implemented the scaling on Windows 10, or something like that - in my post the problem is described well, and also "why there will be no solution" is described equally well

    So, if you have the problem I was facing this little program is your best bet. What I sincerely and honestly can NOT understand is WHY Microsoft has not implemented a similar to this little program's functionality? Why? Was it SO difficult for them to add an option, which would work as this program works, so an option to bring Win 8.1 clarity back? At least for certain monitors and IF the user would wish so?! Is that really so difficult?!

    Anyway,
    No worries for me

    Using it for days, until microsoft release an update to fix this problem is much better for me than having a blurry fonts and windows!
    I posted it here to help the people who are suffering from this problem, I did not force you to use it, its up to you!!

    Windows 10 has the fix for this, simply click on Settings> Display> "Change the size of texts, apps and other items".
    Move the slider to the left for 100% setting, not 125%.

    I don't disagree. I used to be able to leave change my DPI settings to 125% and the text was still crystal clear in Windows 95 to 8.1. It has to be a driver issue. They dont have everyone's drivers created yet apparently.

    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).

    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

    This is not a driver issue... it's issue with how dpi is made, Windows 8.1 has this issue as well to some degree if you don't use the old dpi scaling but apply dpi scaling separately to your monitors, then for example lauch steam after that, it will be all zoomed in and blurry as hell. I don't even know where did it came to you about driver, especially that if you google a lot of people having blurry fonts on dpi higher than 100% and are looking for fix.

    Another BS... 100% is default, if we would be comfortable with size of the font to our eyes at 100% we wouldn't be changing DPI wouldn't we? 100% is too small to read.

    I wouldn't as well, I don't like this method, so i searched, finally found this script above somewhere, I'm sad there is so little options, mostly this software comes up everywhere :/ I found this script on forum in a single post in a thread with a lot of replies... that's why I decided to post it here since it's the 1st thing that comes up with google -_-

    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.
