    It's a good thing to have that option but that's not really a fix though is it, disabling the scaling in compatibility mode sort of defeats the purpose of using it in the first place.

    I found out if you using Windows 10 10586 up to date and Windows 10 rs1 Insider Previews that the fuzzy blurry problem is fixed.

    This is going to be nothing other than a waste of time.

    It's still going to be a waste of time, because the log file didn't show any unrepairable problems, and because what OP is experiencing is the default DPI scaling behavior.

    Why would you even use this if you had no problems, really does not matter though, it worked for me 4 times, at first it would not, until I cleaned disc, then it worked.:worthy:

    I'm sure all it does is set everything back to default.

    Basically this,

    Keep in mind that scaling factors (125/150) are 1.25 and 1.5x
    Now, 200% scaling is easy: scale every pixel 2x, just twice the size.

    However, 125% (1.25) and 150% (1.5x) means you are scaling a pixel 1.25x or 1.5x, which is not a full pixel. so it calculates an additional 0.75 or 0.5 pixel to smooth it out.
    In many cases, this leads to blur. (If you game and use FXAA for example you will know this aswell, smoothing out usually causes blur.)

    Latest redstone builds supposedly improve font rendering and other things for high DPI screens. So maybe that will improve something for you.

    Dism will not do anything for font rendering mechanics on this one as what 100 already says, this is its default behaviour to begin with. (Infact thats not even just windows, its how scaling works in general)

    My concern was that he applied 3 tweaks, thinking maybe if everything was set back to default, errors fixed, it would help him. End of debate, Thanks.:worthy:

    I'm genuinely touched by the number of responses and good words of wisdom from you gents - KUDOS!

    The 3 tweaks refer to the Lenovo of my friend - it worked then.

    On mine - I toyed with the DPI software + clear type, but never installed any updates - I just never do, never trust MS with their updates...

    Also, on my Dell, I have no dvd-rom, Macrium sees no recovery partition either.

    Just some elements that make my life more colourful :D

    I guess I'll live with that.

    You have no Dvd-Rom by choice:confused:
    If I had know that before, I would not feel so ashamed

    By choice, tru dat as they say ;)

    I have two other machines with DVD-roms, so no biggie.

    Now I am fully mobile at long last.

    No need to feel this way mate, I beg you unabashedly ;)

    Perhaps one day we will get a/ the fix for the DPI on my 14''

    It's been 2 months...

    The issue I have mentioned and done I guess all there is to get rid of is still here.

    Any ideas guys how to make my screen fonts easily readable without the freakin' blur?

    p.s. I enjoy the band, though :)
