    Text size issues and blurry text issues on my tablet - HP Stream 7


    I have updated my Stream 7 to Windows 10 - I am happy with how it performs, happy with it in general (although there are some things I preferred in Windows 8.1)

    One thing I am not happy with is the text size issues in Modern/"Metro" apps, and also blurry text in some Windows Win32 applications.

    Before changing from Windows 8.1 to 10, I made sure to check the text size settings on there - they were set to 125%. Makes sense on a tablet of this size. I never ever had a problem reading text using Windows 8.1 on this 7" display.

    However, on 10, I also set it to 125% (it even comes up as "recommended" when I go to select this 125% option) But the text looks no better off and in Metro/Modern Windows apps, the text is just too small for me to see without squinting. Check these screenshots:

    As you can see by these examples of the Facebook and Acrobat modern apps, they are just far too small to be useful on a 7" display - this is with the text for all apps etc apparently set at 125%! Hardly looks like it.

    Another text issue I have is with blurry text in some dialogs. Oddly, I am wondering if it is something to with how certain dialogs are launched. I have a tool called "Network activity monitor" which I've used for years which shows the flashing network lights (absent since Windows XP) - when you click on it, it takes you to the Windows Network details box for that connection. If I click on it through the app in the system tray near the clock, the dialog looks blurry as anything. Check this out:

    But if I launch it from the Network control panel in Windows (double clicking on the adapter name), look at the difference - this is how it SHOULD look and how it looked all the time in Windows 8.1:

    It is sharp, and easy to read. This doesn't just apply to this network box, or else I could ignore it. It happens in other parts of Windows 10 too.

    Any ideas anybody?

    If anybody could offer any advice on these text issues, it'd be greatly appreciated. I'm more concerned about the text size in modern apps to be honest. I simply can't read it comfortably! And I'd be much happier to stick with Windows 10 if these issues can be resolved. This is pretty much the only thing putting me off at the moment and souring the "Windows 10 experience"


    Thanks

    :)

  2. I bought a new HP 15z 1080p, the display is blurry. How to solve the problem?

    Thanks John, I did two ways you said: 1. make sure the resolution 2. updated the drivers. Unfortunately the come out is same. I changed the text size to 100%, it looks better but the text is too small and hard to see. I tried changed to 125% and 150%,
    the bigger text size the more blurry. This laptop processor is AMD A12-9720. I expected it should be much fast than my old i5 one but it is so slow. Is HP 15z 1080p something wrong?

  3. Need Help with External Monitors and Windows Scaling

    Hello All,

    I've recently purchased an HP laptop and a Dell external monitor.

    When I connected the Dell monitor using HDMI cable, the apps like excel, skype etc looks blurry on it. After doing some digging online, I found that most of the people complained about the same issue. What's the best solution to solve this issue?

    These are the two solutions I came across and they didn't work completely.

    1. Make the external monitor as the 'primary monitor'. Done that and everything looks ultra sharp, but now the same apps look blurry on my laptop.

    2. Change the 'size of text, apps to 100%' - Done that and now both are looking ultra sharp but at the cost of tiny texts on my laptop.

    How do I solve the problem? Thanks so much for your help!
