    So I have kind of the same problem and the fixes don't seem to work for me. My problem is that if I set my main monitor to 100% scaling and my second monitor to 125%, some programs (non-stock apps) like in chrome and spotify get blurry, but just on the second monitor. I don't know what to do, please any ideas?

    Hello everyone

    Iím running the latest, leaked, Windows 10 10147 build and everything works fine on my system. There is one thing though I have observed since the beginning, meaning in earlier builds, as well. And that is blurry text on some Windows components like the Device Manager, the Task Scheduler, the Event Viewer, the Disk Management, and others. I also see this blurry text on the installers of the programs I am installing, but also on some programs themselves. I have managed to resolve this by ticking "Disable Display Scaling On High DPI Settings" for these applications. When it comes to all those Windows components Iíve already mentioned though, I have not managed to resolve this yet...


    The following two screenshots show my monitorís specifications. I always run them on their native resolution. And I always set both of them at 125% DPI zoom because if I will not, everything appears too minuscule.

    On Windows 7 64bit Home Premium I always use 125% (Medium) as well, and I never had any similar issues (blurry text).
    Here is how (some of) those Windows components display on my Windows 7 installation and how they look on Windows 10. By the way, On Windows 10 I use the "Recommended Settings", for 125%, and not a Custom DPI.

    Perhaps these screenshots display differently on your monitors so here is a comparison of (a part of) the Device Manager between the two OSes, magnified at 400% :

    I have never used Win 8 or Win 8.1, this is new to me, so Iíd like to ask you:
    1) Is this ďnormalĒ for my displays?
    2) Is there anything I can do to fix this because I dislike this blurriness?

    I have installed and use the latest NVIDIA driver on both my Operating Systems.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    PS: Iíve also reported this on the feedback.
    This fixed the issue for me. I was getting frustrated with this for quite sometime.

    I have found a solution to this problem: Right click on desktop, Display settings, Advanced Display Settings, Advanced Sizing of Text and Other items, then in the first paragraph under "Change size of items" click on the hyper-link that says "set a custom scaling level". Now choose 125% from the little window and click OK and Sign out. This method successfully upped my scaling on Win10 and everything is now big, crisp and clear. Quick way to see that there is in fact no more blurry text, is to right click "This PC" then click Manage. This was the problem area for me where things appeared blurry. I also run dual monitors with different resolutions (1920x1080 & 1366x768).

    If you look closely at the "Manage" screen, compare the very top left, where it says "Computer Management". THAT tab is crystal clear, but the rest of the entire window is blurry. Do you notice that too? See if my screenshot shows this. (I just checked screenshot and it does show this, but not as profound as seeing live on the computer).
    Windows 95 all the way to Windows 8 never had this problem. I still am confused by it.

    Ok, very strange how this works, but it does work. I set everything back to 100% and retried my method just to see if it will work again, it didn't. (I did this using only my 1080 screen). So then I pressed Win+P and chose to only show my second display (1366x768) Now I tried my method again and it works perfectly. When I switch back to my 1080 screen the settings are kept and I have 125% Custom Scaling set with no blur.

    When I am using my lower resolution screen it doesn't allow the normal slider to be moved at all, that is when I went deeper into the settings and found the custom scaling option.

    This is what my settings look like, and as you can see there is no blur within "Computer Management"

    Another way to make it work, and I just tested it, is to change the resolution of your current 1080 monitor down to 1366x768, then:
    * Right Click Desktop, and select Display Settings
    * Scroll down and select Advanced display settings
    * Scroll down and select Advanced sizing of text and other items
    * Click on the hyper-link that says "set a custom scaling level"
    * Set it to 125%, and click ok
    * Click Apply, and sign out and back in again.
    * Reapply your native resolution (1080 for me)

    Now everything is big crisp and clear

    I finished the fix , 100% working in all case : Blur text, can't disable scaling DPI in some app like: PhotoShop , Zalo , Deamweaver ... , no 3rd party tools , no startup files setup , no need to wait update by Microsoft.

    Thing is, we shouldn't have to be doing all this crap to try and get sharp fonts. If we restore Windows, then we have to do this all over again. Microsoft should fix this stuff from the beginning or "up front" as we say here in the States. I'm not going to bother with all this. To be honest, either I am getting used to the blurriness, or not that many windows that come up are blurry.

    It's not win font, it bug : blurry text and display on high resolution monitor from full HD, so it all blur in every solution setting. When change size text, text ok but in some 3rd party app such as adobe not work. Then you cant make design on a screen like that, wasting money to buy high resolution monitor ???
    Then, i dont think microsoft have an update soon because they let the 3rd party do it, so how long we wait, how long my monitor wait, sry 4 my bad english
