Blurry on 1600x900

I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z710-00800. When I set my laptop on 1600x900, instead of the default 1920x1080, my fonts are very blurry. Hope someone can help me Smiley Very Happy

Re: Blurry on 1600x900

I take you are running windows 8/8.1

You need to disable DPI In every program you have, once set you won't have to do it again.

E.g chrome:
Right chrome.exe
Properties
Tick "disable scaling for DPI"
Apply settings
open chrome Smiley Happy.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, i'm running Windows 8.1 but even there the icons and text in Windows are fuzzy.  On 1900x1080 they are very sharp, but everything is not easy to read then.

 

I really hope for a solution!

Re: Blurry on 1600x900

Panels have to be run at their native resolution or else they will look fuzzy or blurry.  Some panels are worse than others but they are all the same.  Running a 1920x1080 panel at 1600x900 is not a good idea.

 

This forces you to use 1920x1080 and then you can try using the Windows 8 DPI scaling.  I found that this did not look good either so I went back to tiny and sharp.  You can increase icon size and font sizes which helps in a lot of programs.  Windows scaling is pretty pathetic.

 

Edit - Here is some additional info about various  DPI scaling options in Windows 8.
