  1. Certain programs look muddy, blurry.


    Hi there. So I've come across an issue that I've had for a while, but recently has become more prevalent. Some programs after a while start to look super muddy see in the attached image. currently it's mostly happening to the program called atom, and I have had it with discord in the past. Any ideas on why it's doing this? I've watched some videos on youtube about it, but the fixes they recommend don't seem to work for me activating "Let windows try to fix apps so they're not blurry", etc


    My sepcs:

    CPU: 6700k

    GPU: GTX 1070

    RAM: 16gb 2400

    SSD: 860 evo

    Win10 Pro 64


    Thanks.

    Fonts is blurry in some programs

    I run Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit

    The font in the GUI of certain programs (programs that were installed by me the user) show in very blurry font

    It doesn't occur in other programs

    For example I run Nitro PDF Pro (a PDF editor). All its menu and screens show in blurry font as well as any PDF document that I open and view in this program.

    I am on the recommended display settings (resolution, etc.) in the OS

    Any idea how I can fix it?

  3. Blurry text in windows 10 in some programs

    Thank you for the feedback, JK. Have you tried to adjust the compatibility settings of the Microsoft Office programs? If you haven't, then let's adjust it to improve its appearance. Follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows icon, then File Explorer.
    • Open Microsoft Office folder.
    • Right-click the icon of the Office program with blurry text and click
      Properties
      .
    • Click the Compatibility tab and check Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
