    After the Creators Update (CU) I could barely read any text on my external 2560x1440 monitor (laptop has 1920x1080). I tried 3 different Microsoft support people (one suggested clean boot, no better, other two suggested new drivers, no better). All text was really bad, desktop, apps, browsers, even the icons on the taskbar looked bad, but nothing helped. I asked in MS Windows forum, and received suggestions but no solution. I rolled back CU and everything worked, but then installed it again to try the MS tech ideas.

    Today, with a headache from trying to read my screen I decided to drop the monitor to 1920x1080 to see if that would be better. It looked a little better, but I lost a lot of screen real estate, so I tried each higher resolution in turn. When I get back to 2560x1440 everything is crisp and clear, not fuzzy. I can't believe this, so I reboot, and everything is OK.

    Sounds like a stupid fix I know, but it worked for me...
    Just signed up to say this worked for me too, after trying driver updates, scaling, etc.

    Just registered in order to share that everything was working great until today's Windows 10 Creators Update. Now most of the text on my monitor is blurry (but especially in Chrome!). Had to increase resolution which made all text smaller and now I have to sit closer to the monitor (even with my prescription reading glasses...). Yet again, another update that makes life harder, not easier.

    I have this issue - for example, fuzzy text in the Inbox in Outlook, but razor-sharp in Mail - this is on a 4k display; I re-read the OP and thought I'd try changing the system font from Segoe UI to Tahoma (which as the OP observes is fine) and that has certainly helped.
