Just found this article (paste the blue text in a browser, BC can't show it rightly, windows10_dpi_blurry_fix.xpexplorer.com/ ) on how to fix DPI fuzziness problems on widescreen monitors, when reading PC World's latest article on Windows 10 headaches, comment by Darren Fajcz. 

 

I have the problem described, and it's very annoying how all the dialog boxes in Win10, look like bad photos of previous dialog boxes in Win7 and 8.

 

I couldn't find a prior BC article on the topic, though I did search.  So if this issue is already in some other topic, I apologize!

 

I've not tried to use it yet, because I'm not sure I want to run Win10 anymore.  Meanwhile, someone else might benefit.  Since the solution is in two parts, the second of which involves some software download, I don't know how members will feel about that.  On the other hand, maybe it's a good idea, at least the first part, which is a Win10 settings change.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Aura.  It's a phpBB bug.  It works fine in the editor but disappears after posting.  So I took out the fronting protocol.

 

Funny thing is, there was a young lad of about 16 or 17 in PC World forum who kept on complaining about the same thing in Win8.  Brightest kid I've ever encountered online, very mature for his age, also lives in Canada.  His PC World name is LiveBrianD.  Wish I could hire him, but he's destined for greater things.  I can't find his posts on the topic, now, as PC World forums are down.  Wow, lots of valuable players in there, input all gone.

 

You remind me of him.  Canada is lucky.

I don't use the "enriched" text editor or whatever it's called, it's a real pain :P I prefer typing my MyBB code manually.

And yeah there's a few kids/teens online that are quite smart. I know a few that are way above my level and it's always surprising to encounter one.
