    Hello Gordon7, and thank you.

    I forgot to mention above that I went through "adjust clear type" previously and still received the same faded out display, but your suggestion prompted me to try it again. So, I just finished it. Unfortunately, same result. I'm truly stymied.

    Won't let me quote anyone. keeps telling me message is too short. Anyway. I tried clear type and that didn't help. It's really ridiculous but the text looks way better when I turn the display down to 1080p the problem is everything else looks way worse. This is a serious problem. And yes that program might help a little pepanee ​but not for the majority of things I need it to. Thanks

    Sorry for the delayed response. No I haven't tried because I'm pretty sure it's to do with the operating system not the type of computer or the monitor. The value is that I play games and watch TV for a monstrous amount of time and it looks incredible in 4K. The text's a bit small and skinny but I'm pretty much used to it now. I just hope they'll improve it in the future because there's scaling problems with far more then just text. Some entire apps launch so small you can hardly see buttons or read them. Fortunately nothing crucial that I use a lot. The tray icons were blurry blobs for the first few months but Microsoft fixed that now.

    Hello @GRaiano, :)

    If you haven't already, you might see if increasing your DPI scaling level to make everything appear larger may help.

    In addition, the tutorial below can help show you how to change the default system font used by Windows. Using a bold font may help make text stand out better for you.

    Changing the system font in conjunction with changing its size might be the best solution. I used the second option in Brink's post to change the system font to Verdana. Then used 'System Font Size Changer' by Wintools to set the size. Mine is only a 1920x1080 monitor but I think these two measures have improved the clarity of the system font quite a bit.

    Something must have changed in Win 10 recently, because all my text has become fainter and less clear. Going through the cleartype setup again has allowed me to choose bolder and clearer text. I've done this in the past, but obviously those former settings no longer work.
