  1. High DPI scaling issue - even "properties" occurs blurry


    I recently purchased a laptop running windows 10. It has the latest updates, and both scaling and resolution are set to windows recommended (150% and 1920x1080), but still even windows' inherent popups are blurry (images are attached).
    Please guide me as to how to fix this issue

    Disable High DPI Automatic Scaling

    Hello,

    What we can suggest to resolve the issue with your DPI settings is by following the steps on this
    article. Please note that these are only workarounds. DPI Scaling issues can be very tricky as these
    can involve multiple PC configuration. You would need to report this on our
    Feedback Hub
    for our Engineers to be notified of the issue as stated on the article.

    Update us if there are improvements.

  3. Regarding High DPI Scaling Behavior In Windows 10 (p)

    Hi David,

    High-DPI scaling improves the way Windows 10 handles automatic scaling per-monitor, which reduces the amount of blur or incorrect size for legacy apps. Here are the three scaling options:

    • System (Enhanced) will make the text and interface look crispier and elements will be sized correctly. This new option will override the way that a particular app handles the DPI scaling, which can result in interface elements and text
      being blurry, and allows Windows 10 to take care of the scaling.
    • Application used to be referred as "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings." Using this option will force the app to run on a per-monitor DPI awareness.
    • When you enabled System, Windows 10 will stretch the interface, bitmap elements, and text will be blurry. This is the standard way Windows 10 handles scaling.

    The new DPI scaling settings are only available for traditional desktop (GDI-based) apps. Windows Store apps cannot be configured with these options because they're already optimized for high pixel density displays.

    Should you need additional information, do let us know.

  4. High DPI scaling issue - even "properties" occurs blurry

    Windows 10 High DPI Scaling problem

    I have upgraded to windows 10 and also did a lot of research on the high DPI scaling problem, I have fixed the blurry text in applications by disabling the high dpi scaling but not able to fix this issue in device manager and photo viewer since they don't
    have an .exe file. It's a surprise that being a Microsoft's application this apps are DPI unware. I just would like to know if they have a plan to fix this. I faced the same problem when I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1 but was fixed by a registration entries
    published by Microsoft which I found somewhere in the web. The registry name was
    Enable-High-DPI-Support.reg So, will there be any method to fix the dpi scaling issue in windows 10?
