    Blurry text in applications on windows 10


    Hi i am running windows 10 professional on my dell inspiron 5521, everything seems to be woring fine except for the fact that some applications show slight blurry text and this is only in applications and not on desktop text or other rext such a MS Word, i do not know if it is the drivers or not.

    Display Drivers are:
    AMD Radeon HD 8730M
    Intel HD Graphics 4000

    ill include pictures and notice the blurry text on the left and clear one on the right

    The blurry text may only be slight but it is annoying when using applications,
    any help would be highly appreciated.
    thank you

    :)

    Blurry Text in Windows 10, when iTunes is up all the text is blurry and pixelated. Why is this?

    For the most part my display is great on my HP Spectre, however, when iTunes is up all the text is blurry and pixelated. Why is this? Any research I do tells me to download an application called XPexplorer, which did not work. Why is this happening?

    Check that you have set high resolution pictures under Options.



    If you are opening the images with the Photos application you need to wait a few seconds for the image to render (5-10 seconds) while it's rendering a blurry preview of the picture is shown. Copy the pictures using MASS STORAGE to a PC and open the pictures
    there, are they blurry? Zoom in to see the text, is it blurry?

    Post a sample picture in OVI SHARE, FLICKR, Photobucket, Picassa or other picture sharing site so we can see what you mean by "blurry text"



    I have an N97 and the text is very sharp.

    hey moegoe

    Check your display settings, is windows doing a scaling. Mine is set up to scale with 125%.

    You can rightclick on your application, then properties then compatibility and disable scaling for high DPI settings.

    See if that helps

    My workaround to that is to select "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" under compatibility tab when right clicking an app icon in the taskbar and opening properties (doesn't work with every program though but does with most).

    ceauke thanks for your quick response but I've tried that it was initially set on 125% but that was abit to small for me so I made it 135% so suit my preferences.

    TeknoBug could you please give me easier directions to your solution I can't find the 'disable scaling on high dpi settings'. Thank you

    Hi rezarawat

    The first test for you should be to set it at 100 and see if it's still fuzzy.
    If it's not you know it's about the scaling and then you can try and click that DPI compatibility setting.
    If it's fuzzy with 100% you need a different solution.

    Blurry text in applications on windows 10

    Thanks ceauke setting it to 100% made every application text super clear but now the problem is I want my scale at 135 as 100 is too small. But how do I make every application have the 100% text clarity instead of checking "doable display scaling on high DPI settings" for each and every application. Such as device manager, that can't be done so the text is blurry

    Unfortunately there isn't a way around that, some programs aren't coded to scale with the text scaling. I to use 140%.

    Did you try what Teknobug suggested ? Right click the program launcher, select properties and then compatability. Tick the box as shown.

    You can also alter this in the program files for the relevant program in the same way. Right click the executable file that launces the program and alter it there. I've had to do this for several programs in W10

    Hi yes I have done what teknobug suggested and it does actually work. The problem is I have to do that for every application as I have said before. Is there no way to make "disable display scaling on high DPI settings" that the default?

    You only have to do it the once though. (I don't know of any way to change the default)

    Say I do it for utorrent but not iTunes. iTunes will still be blurry so I'll have to do it for any application I want to use. Thanks for the advice tho

    The dpi fix works for most applications I use but some Windows applications (e.g. Event Viewer) appear fuzzy on my 2560x1440 display at 125% scaling. The is no compatibility tab for applications such as Event Viewer (eventvwr.exe) so how do you fix these Windows applications?
