Blurry text when changing size of text in Win10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I'm having trouble with blurry text when running native solution on 3/4K monitors and scaling text up. I've read and tried some of the suggestions out there, concerning DPI scaling, but I hasn't been able to eliminate the blurry text just yet. Could someone please throw me a hint on what to do here?

    Regards Søren

  • Sure it's VB.net. :-o

    I've tried adding info to the manifest:


    I've tried altering form properties like AutoScalemode, Autosize, AutoSizeMode, etc

    Right now I'm not even sure that I'm on the right track. Has this issue anything to do with dpi-scaling at all? -  I don't know. What I do know, is that alle my applications is suffering from this blurry-everything issue. Offcource the bitmaps would tend to blur when scaling up - but the text? I don't get it.

  • I doubt this has anything to do with VB.Net specifically.  I have noticed a number of programs with "blurry" visuals after upgrading to Windows 10, however the latest NVidia driver update improved this significantly.  However for some applications you may still wish to turn off scaling for high-DPI settings (video).  This should correct the issue and is preferable to changing to a lower DPI setting if you have a high-res monitor.

    This thread can probably be moved to off-topic in a few days.
