  2. DPI settings over 125% produce smaller fonts in some situations.


    Unfortunately the Anniversary Update got rid of the menu to change the font sizes as your tutorial shows. This presumably is because MS doesn't want the user to change the UI, at least not easily.

    I changed the message box font size in the Registry but it didn't work. It's probably a leftover from the font menu and not tied to anything. Some message box fonts are fine btw. As I said, the most notable example of using a DPI > 125% is Task Manager where the font is even smaller than when I had my DPI at 125%. I know Windows 10 CU has some DPI enhancements so I'm hoping my problems get fixed.

  3. Windows 10 DPI-Awareness issues, blurry text 125%


    I've searched through the web and I found this great tool that fixed the blurry text that I had after changing my scale to 125% in Windows 10.

    Simply download the file from the following page, run it and and choose the Windows 8.1 DPI scaling option and the required scaling level and then restart your computer/laptop.

    DPI settings over 125% produce smaller fonts in some situations.


    I needed fonts on my 24" monitors to be a little larger for my aging eyes. So I settled on 135%. One consequence of doing this is that some fonts are smaller now. A good example is Task Manager. Other examples are some message boxes. It appears when you go over 125% DPI this font weirdness happens.

    First off, does anyone else notice the smaller fonts and if so is there a way to make them bigger? I played around with High DPI Awareness in the registry but can't get larger fonts for those things affected. Perhaps the Creators Update will address this.
