    Anniversary Update - high DPI issues

    Anyone has come across this and found a solution? Yesterday I updated my OS to the latest build (1607) and since then I've been experiencing strange problems with fonts display. I use 4K monitor and after the upgrade different UI parts are now not scaled to high DPI at all. Surprisingly they are not repeatable, but rather chosen randomly - once those are desktop icon labels, the other time those are taskbar fonts and/or apps menu bar fonts. All combinations of those are also present.

    What hits me is that when I used the previous build (TH2) no problems existed at all. They all started with the latest build and - what's totally crazy - MS claims to have fixed many high DPI display problems in this release...

    Anyone can tell me please if there's any way I can deal with it? Any trick at least to reset all settings to default?

    OK, for those who may face the same problems - what has helped me was Winaero Tweaker that has the option to reset all appearance settings to their defaults. After that, all elements are displayed and scaled correctly.
