Windows 10: Blurry tiles on Start Screen

    Blurry tiles on Start Screen

    Hi there,

    I've just upgraded to Windows 10 after a while on 8.1 and am slowly getting used to the changes. Because I preferred the Start Screen from 8 (as opposed to a Start Menu) I've set that as my default option on 10. But I'm experiencing an odd issue where the image on the tiles appears somewhat blurry. The really strange thing about this is I've noticed that the blurriness only sets in momentarily after switching to the Start Screen, and that there's a brief split second where the tiles appear at their normal sharpness before changing to blurry.

    To illustrate the issue I managed to get a screen grab just at the right moment when the tiles appear correctly, and another after they became blurry. I've taken a couple of tiles from these images as a comparison and attached it below.

    I've tried reinstalling my graphics card (Intel HD 4000) drivers but had no joy. Does anyone know a way to fix this issue as it makes the move to Windows 10 look more like a downgrade. Thanks very much!

I was trying to figure out why the Start screen looked odd--and then I noticed the app icons in the tiles are about 1/3 the size they were in Windows 8, so you've got (for example), a tiny W for Word in Windows 10 vs a more visible W in Windows 8.1....
