    win 10 blurry text/screen - new laptop


    hey,


    i have a new win10 laptop, and i have a issue of blurry text/screen when i set screen to 125%.
    i have 2 graphic cards - nvidia and intel, i already set the nvidia default in the nvidia control panel to be the main gpu.
    when its on 100% its works great but in the screen settings it is show to me that 100% its not recommended. only the 125% recommended, i tried to set custom dpi 125% didn't work, reinstall graphic cards/reinstall the windows and more many options.
    by the way i tried to set custom dpi 125 and in screen settings put 125% also and its works fine but it show to me its display on 175%.
    now its on 100% but not recommended but its works fine.
    its really confused what its should be to best display.

    there is a few screenshots of the current settings 100% display,

    when i change to 125% in this settings everything become blur,

    but if i put on the custom dpi 125% also its good but its show me as 175%






    Thanks!

    This is a common issue when using higher screen magnification. Find the .exe file for the offending program (as an Administrator), right click the file, select Properties / Compatibility / Change settings for all users then tick the box for "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" then Apply. There are some Windows utilities e.g. Event Viewer which you can't fix. We can only hope MS listens to feedback and provides a solution.

    This fix applies to standard programs, not the fancy W10 Apps. If using the Start Menu - to find the program, select all apps, right click on the program, More, Open File Location. Then right click on the shortcut, select Properties / Shortcut and under target you should find the .exe file location. You can also peruse the c:\program files & c:\program files (x86) folders to find the .exe file if you know what you are looking for.

    that would be your problem. It is the display driver that manages what is on the screen, not the program. If you are using a flatscreen and have it set for a very high resolution, suggest that you change the resolution to something lower, so that you do not have to use a Magnifying glass.

    The larger the dpi, the worse that anything on the screen will appear.

    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?
