Windows 10: Legacy applications font scaling is blurry in build 10586
Legacy applications font scaling is blurry in build 10586
This question I'm sure has been addressed many times, yes? I just made a purchase of a Dell Inspiron 13 5000 2-in-1. The system is a pearl accept for the font display in the legacy applications and OS widgets. The only solution seems to be to adjust the font scaling and set the DPI value to 125%. This makes everything smaller, yuck! My question, has anyone seen the same on any build 10586 system and then see the problem go away by installing the August update build 14393? Because that is the only software related change I haven't tried. Updating Intel display drivers had no effect.
The only solution I have found is to use Windows DPI fix utility: Windows 10 DPI blurry / fuzzy text font fix - XP Explorer
Works great and no detectable side effects on my system.
Thanks for the tip..
Let me experiment a bit.. does it work for 4k monitors scalingissues as well ??
That I don't know as I have a 1080p display.
The blurry scaling issue was present in the original Windows 10. Then it was fixed in Windows 10 Update 1511. And it stayed fixed for a long while. There was no need for any "DPI fix" utilities. People began to forget they ever had this problem.
However, in one of the pre-AU updated Microsoft suddenly reverted the fix somehow (or reintroduced it in some other way) and now this issue is back
Font scaling issues are back after the recent update! - Windows 10 Forums
AU does not fix it either. So now we have this problem back full strength.
WTH they are doing there at Microsoft is not entirely clear to me. My guess would be that they are completely unaware about this issue going away and then coming back. It is just out of control at this time.
MS have screwed up as mentioned above. Find the .exe file for the offending legacy application and set "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" under the Compatibility tab. Does that help?
My main monitor is 2560x1440 and my 2nd monitor is 1920x1080. When I set both to 100% or 125% scaling they both look fine. If I set my main monitor to 125% and my 2nd monitor to 100% the 2nd monitor is blurry.
Is anyone else having this problem?...
