    Good news, Joanne. Took a while but it seems you can relax now.

    Hi,
    Just play with your screen settings:
    Course and Fine
    Set both of them until your view, is perfect
    I had the same issue and after setting clear text, and then the Course an Fine settings on my Monitor,
    my text was clear as crystal.
    Cheers

    Fixed in build 10576


    I upgraded from RTM (10240) to build 10576 and can confirm this is fixed on my machine.

    I had to register myself in the forum just to thank you Jorm. It simply solved all my issues on Windows 10!

    Besides the problem of blurry text, I was experiencing blurry images on Windows Photo Viewer (see pic below).

    The funny thing in this issue is that unlike everybody else, pics were just fine on the Photos app and blurry on Windows Photo Viewer. I'm saying that based on the extensive google search I've gone through to find a workaround. There were many users complaining of blurry images on Photos App but not on Windows Photo Viewer.
    Anyway, Jorm .cmd worked like a charm to fix this too!

    The other problem the fix solved for me was the innapropriate way Google Chrome was showing some pages and eventually omitting features on these pages! (see pics below for better understanding - ignore the language please)

    This is how the page should look like:

    And this is how it looked like before applying the fix:
    Windows 10
    Click image for larger version.

    It was happening in many websites which have these "navigation arrows".
    Now Chrome shows them as they should be, just perfect!

    So thank you everybody for all your replies and suggestions! Without your interest in solving this problem, we probably wouldn't have figured this out.
    A special thanks to Jorm who posted, in my opinion, the best solution so far. Now I can finally have my Windows 10 working properly!

    PS: adj592, I'm using your workaround to hide the batch file at startup and it's working just fine! Thank you!

    Can I just clarify.
    Does the above mean that Microsoft has actually addressed this issue in a recent build of W10? And that if I now go from W7 to W10 I don't need to do any 'hacks' or special procedures? (I upgraded a month ago and went back to W7 because of the awful blurry text).
    Thank you.

    Yes. For me the problem no longer exists on current version (10586) and so the workarounds are no longer required.

    Only one slight hitch left...


    Thanks.
    I've successfully upgraded, and this time W10 actually found my printers!

    One remaining hitch. Text is 'spiky' in Edge. But it's perfect in Chrome and IE11 if I hunt its .exe file and launch it.
    I was going to try the right click on properties move but I can't find Edge.exe, does anyone know where it lives?

    Many thanks.

    Go to %windir%\SystemApps, you shoud see a Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*something* folder. In there are the two Edge's executables, but they do not run the browser directly. That might be due to Edge being an App. I still don't know what Apps actually are and how they differ from normal programs.

    problems with 4k monitor

    If you don't want to use a third party tool, just create a .cmd file with the content of

    Code:
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v DpiScalingVer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00001018 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Win8DpiScaling /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v LogPixels /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000078 /f
    and put it in your startup folder. Voila! You have your own fix now. This is what I linked in the previous page as well.

    The problem lies with DpiScalingVer and Win8DpiScaling keys in the respective section of registry. These keys used to change respecting what scale option you did choose in Windows 8.1 (Win8DpiScaling entry being "Let me choose one display scale for all stuff", it's not even present in Windows 10), but now only LogPixels entry is affected when a scaling option is selected.

    So in fact we manually edit those keys to have what we had in the past. There are no negative side effects or anything, and it's gonna probably be fixed in the future.
    soooooooo apparently this might fix the font issue buttt doesnt work so well with a 4 monitor cause the font size on my 4k monitor is sooo smalll
