Method 1: Ensure resolution is set correctly

If the resolution on the system is set incorrectly, fonts can be blurry. So the first thing you can check is the system resolution and ensure it’s set correctly. To do so:

1) Right-click on the desktop and select Display settings.

2)Scroll down to the Scale and layout section and find Display resolution. Then select a resolution from the drop-down menu of Display resolution. If you’re not sure which resolution is best for your monitor, try the resolutions one by one until you find the one that can make the font not blurry.

3) Sign out of Windows then sign back in for the changes to take effect.

If Method 1 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 2.

Method 2: Update the graphics card driver

Font blurry issues can be caused by missing or outdated graphics card drivers. To fix the issue, you can try updating the graphics card driver.

You can go to your PC manufacturer’s website to download the latest graphics card driver. If you’re using a built computer, go to the motherboard or graphics card manufacturer’s website to download the latest driver.

Updating drivers manually can take forever if you’re not familiar with drivers. For example, you need to check what graphics card you have and what Windows version you have. If you don’t have time and computer skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy, which allows you to update drivers with just a few clicks.

1) Download Driver Easy Free and install it on your computer.

2) Launch the application and click the Scan Now button to detect any problem drivers on your computer. After scan is complete, you’ll see a list of drivers that can be updated

3) Click the Update button next to the graphics driver. Then the driver will be downloaded to your computer. Once download is done, you can install the driver easily with the step-by-step guide from Driver Easy.

If you upgrade to Driver Easy Pro, you can update all drivers with just one click. Click the Update All button then all drivers will be updated quickly.

Method 3: Change the scaling factor

A high DPI value can also cause font blurry issues. For most computers, it’s recommended to set the scaling factor to 100%. Or set a scaling factor to the one that’ll make the font look sharper. To fix the problem, you can try to change the scaling factor. Here’s how to do it:

1) Right-click on the desktop and select Display settings.

2) In the Scale and layout section, check if the value of Change the size of the text, apps, and other items is set to 100%. If not, select 100% from the drop-down menu.

3) Sign out of Windows then sign back in to see if the problem still persists. If the problem persists, the 100% scale factor may not be the best factor for you. Try other scaling factors until you find the one that works.

Method 4: Adjust ClearType text

If none of the above methods resolves your font blurry issue, you can try to adjust the text with Windows built in tool ClearType Text Tuner, which can make texts sharper and easier to read.

1) On your keyboard, press Win+S (the Windows logo key and the S key) at the same time to open Search.

2) Type ‘cleartype’ into the search box and click Adjust ClearType Text in the result list to open the ClearType Text Tuner window.

3) Ensure the checkbox Turn on ClearType is checked then click Next to continue.

4) Windows will make sure the resolution is set correctly. Just click Next to continue.

5) On the next five screens, you’ll see some text blocks which show you the text samples. Just select the text sample that looks best to you. Then click Next to continue.

6) After following the on-screen instructions to select the text blocks, click the Finish button.

7) Check to see if the problem persists.

Hopefully you can fix the font blurry issue with the methods above. If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below.
