    I have a Dell XPS 9510 with a 3.5k resolution panel and Windows 11. In this panel I use 200% scalability and it works fine.But in my 27-inch 4K external monitor I prefer to use 150%, to fit more things in the screen. Many programs work simply fine with that setup.What I found is that some settings from legacy control panel are very blurry. Even if you set up 150% in the advance settings, they keep very blurry.Just like mentioned in previous question: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/blurry-text-on-some-windows-windows-11/87c77f67-e382-41fe-ba6c-7bf8a42da8b5I want a straigh

    Windows 10 Enterprise blurry text in some apps - 150% scaling


    Hi, I am aware of scaling problem on high DPI monitors/screens Windows 10 has. Therefore I has been using XPEWindows10_DPI_FIX with custom scaling of 124% without any display problems (even .mmc consoles are displayed fine such as device manager, event viewer and so on). This morning I started to use external keyboard instead of laptop's keyboard thus I had to change scaling to higher value e.g. 150% but now text in device manager, event viewer ... is blurry. I thought XPEWindows10_DPI_FIX works fine for all scaling values but it seems not. Is there any solution for this? Laptop is farther from me than before because of keyboard thus scaling of 124% is not appropriate value anymore.

    It is absolutely unacceptable how MS screwed up scaling which was working fine on Windows 8.1 and still it does not have any 100% working solution. I am system engineer who frequently use .mmc consoles which are completely unaware of high dpi scaling - displayed text is very very blurry.

  3. Blurry text on Chrome and Firefox browser (DPI Scaling) on Windows 10

    Original Title: Blurry text on Chrome and Firefox browser (DPI Scaling)

    Hi guys,

    I recently purchase Lenovo Yoga 2 pro with windows 8.1 and connected my pro link monitor 2217WE-D as an extended display.

    I set my laptop display resolution 3200x1800 (max) and Scaling 150%

    Similarly, Set the monitor 1920x1080 (max) and Scaling 100%.

    It worked well...Everything was perfect. Texts were sharp and clear

    The problem occurred after I upgraded to Windows 10.

    My laptop display is perfectly fine with 3200x1800+150% Scaling.

    But, In monitor, some apps, like Chrome and Firefox texts look very blurry. If I set the Scaling level to 125%, everything is clear. But I did not like it because texts are too big which I do not like. I want to keep my monitor zoom level 100%.

    If I disable "DPI Scaling" in Compatibility options, Both Chrome and Firefox enlarge themselves to 125% automatically. As said, I do not like very big texts.

    I updated Graphics driver, But it didn't help.

    Is there any suggestions? Thanks

    Friendly,

    Chandra

  4. Blurry text in Windows 11 settings at 150% scaling, works fine in 200%

    Weird blurry text scaling in a few system applications/screens

    What I always suggest in such case: Go to Settings - Display - Advanced scaling settings and enter custom scaling size to 125. Probably it still depends on your resolution but with me it works. Already 4 years this issue hasn't disappear even fix blury whatever option is on and so many CUs. Just give it a shot *Smile
