    I solved the blurry text problem on most programs at 125% dpi by using the disable dpi fix above. There are some MS utilities e.g. Event Viewer which can't be fixed this way. Hopefully MS will fix the problem?
    Not a Microsoft or Windows problem. The problem is with people trying to use the Native settings for a large flat screen or a projector. You have to set your resolution down to say 1024x768. Also turning off all fancy settings like Motion, Auto Contrast, etc, along with Overscan, can fix things.

    The Display Driver for the GPU is what handles the display, not Windows. If you do not have the proper display driver from the chipset manufacturer loaded, you will get a very basic set of settings. It is always best to install the GPU software that allows you to adjust the extra settings to make the image cleaner on a large screen.

    I see this problem on 2 PCs with all GPU drivers up to date. I still think it's a bug for MS utilities and poor program design in other applications.

    Hi,
    Did you Adjusted the "Calibrate Color" and "Clear Type" settings?
    If not, you may want to try it first.
    Also on Intel HD Graphics Control Panel you may want to try to Adjust the Gamma Correction, the Default Setting is too High for my eyes.
    I prefer to have it to 0,7.

    The problem is a dpi issue in certain MS utilities and programs since most programs are fine with 125% scaling

    Well, if the "Calibrate Color" and "Clear Text" are at default , things will get worse with higher DPI and in some Application the quality gets bad.
    That is my opinion.
    Thank you.

    EDIT: It will not solve all the problem but it helps too reduce it.

    Again it is not a bug for Windows. You have your display set for a higher resolution, which may not be native, thus the blurry fonts when you see them. Your display driver is what controls the GPU to display on the screen, not Windows.

    The fix is to stop using too high of a resolution.

    It is suggested to not use Clear Type on LCD screens. Color adjustment is good if you are doing photo editing or writing up a master template for printing.

    Again it has nothing to do with any programs, it has nothing to do with some strawman that you are making up about Microsoft. It is also not a Windows issue. The Display driver controls the GPU to display what you see on the screen. You have not even posted what resolution you are using, which is most likely not even native for your laptop. That is why the fonts are blurry.

    All my PCs use native resolution and most apps/programs are pin sharp at 125% scaling. There are a few blurry utilities like Event Viewer which are blurry and cannot whose dpi cannot be changed. How can it be a driver issue when most apps/programs are fine? I think some Windows utilities are poorly designed to disply on a wide range of dpis and need fixing.

    If you are seeing difference between different programs it is because of your GPU drivers and if you are using the utility. No one else is having this issue. It is always suggested to install the latest GPU driver and software to change settings. Changing the DPI is going to make text blurry. Especially if you have a large screen, which you have not posted what resolution that you are using.

    Once again it is not a program problem, it is a GPU driver issue and possibly that your resolution is set too high by what the GPU considers "Native" for the LCD screen.

    I have Glaucoma and implanted lenses from Cataracts being removed. I am not seeing anything that you are stating is going on. Even with my reading glasses on, the text on my laptop is not blurry at the "native" resolution of my laptop screen.
