    try changing your refresh rate to a random number like 23hz and then back to 60hz

    It did not work. I can only change it to 50 hz and it did not do anything.

    I have this same issue since this morning. First i thought that i messed something up when i cleaned my pc last night, but i only used a compressed air can.However, I did remove my gpu only to blow the fans from dust. I have an old Philips Brilliance 220SW monitor which is not even near to a HD monitor and everything is blurry since the update.

    Edit: I did a complete removal of my nvidia driver and reinstalled the newest driver, messed around with the calibration and scaling options, but nothing seems to work and nothing helpful came out from searching the web.

    Edit 2: I solved my problem in my graphics card control panel. I set my refresh rate at the highest possible, for some reason it was set on the lowest setting.

    The highest my graphics card goes to is 60hz which it is set too and it still did not work.

    Okay it is the stupid GDI+ that is making the fonts fuzzy. I found out using Crystal Disk Info go to fonts and choose GDI it is clear. Default and GDI+ is a blurry mess.

    Anyway to force W10 to use GDI for fonts? Google was useless again just saying how the DPI looks better.

    It's incredibly clear what OP's problem was here. I'm not sure why nobody here could figure it out.

    OP's original settings were set up to use ClearType with BGR subpixel order (in the upper screenshot); in the blurry text he was seeing, it was being rendered with RGB subpixel order.

    Subpixel rendering - Wikipedia

    If you zoom in on the pictures (Win+=) you can see that the chromatic aberration on the edges of the text (used to counter the offsets in a typical monitor) are on opposite sides, making it look worse on his screen instead of better.

    OP can probably use the ClearType calibration tool and choose the aliasing mode that looks best to him:

    However, this might not fix it as there are bugs in the Creator's Update preview that are causing it to fail to render correctly in some circumstances but not others (hence how I found this thread).

    ---

    After some investigation:

    Some dialogs and text, for instance the network connection sharing dialog, will always render with the wrong anti-aliasing disposition.

    System set to BGR:

    Dialog text renders in RGB mode.

    Dialog text renders in BGR mode.

    Here's hoping they fix this soon.

    Dice, you could try adjusting your graphics card AND monitors built in sharpness to see if that helps any.
    I'm using a dual monitor setup now, and my new one ids 4K and my old one is 1080 HD.

    I use Display Pilot on my 4K(BenQ BL series) to calibrate(using Passmark's Monitor Test(the only free 4K calibration test patterns I could find on the net), and I used NVIDIA Control Panel and a couple of different 1080p test patterns I have, to calibrate my 1080(HP 27vx) as the version of Display Pilot for it is buggy as all-hell.

    Then after all that, I used Clear-Type.

    But you need to adjust your Contrast, Brightness, and Gamma first, then sharpness(not too sharp though or antialiasing won't look right) to reduce color bleeding.

    No, he could not. None of this is the fault of his graphics card or monitor. I've replicated the problem fully for you above, as you can see.

    In my monitor this one:



    looks WAY worse than this:




    And as said by widdershins , it's caused by different RGB subpixel arrangement

    I know about that, it can be compensated when correctly calibrated.
