    Multiple screens of different dpi show blurry text (really bad)


    my setup:
    win10 with 3 monitors: 4k 27" monitor and two 24" 1920x1080 monitors.
    windows suggested 150% dpi for the 4k and 100% for the others.
    4k looks great but the 24" (with 100% dpi!) looks terrible. The text is all blurry.
    I saw many similar issues (saw this: https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...ry-text-4.html)
    and tried the registry changes, but all fixes (including the utility that is out there) set all monitors to the same DPI.
    I can't do 100% in the 4k, it's too small, and I must do 100% in the small screens, otherwise it's too big.
    Got latest drivers for my GeForce GTX 970 and monitors (vendors drivers for all monitors).

    I really don't want to let go of my 4k, but it is impossible to use the other ones.
    I attached an example for when the 4k is d/c (top) and when it is connected (bottom) from the 24" monitor. it is not really text but is shows how terrible it is, I simply can't read for more than a few minutes.

  2. Windows 10 - Multiple screens of different dpi shows blurry text

    I - and everybody else I know with high resolution laptops - have the same issue when connecting the monitor to a standard resolution monitor.

    You have to choose to only use one of the monitors. So when docked, I only use my HD-monitors - and even then I have to log off and back on before the blurriness disappears.

    This means: If I log in when my laptop (4k) monitor is active, then the text on the attached monitors will be blurry until I log off - turning off the laptop monitor does not help.

    This clearly is a Microsoft Windows bug... Please fix it, Microsoft (it is the same issue with your high-res Surface Books ...)

    Multiple screens of different dpi show blurry text (really bad)

    Interesting update,
    The monitor I set to be the main monitor is always totally clear. when I set my 24" to be the main, the 27" was blurry.
    It's a shame having a blurry 4k monitor.
    why is that?
    any ideas what I can try next?
