I am having scaling issues in windows 10. The applications blur out frequently. This is not happening in all of the apps though, examples for problematic apps: Skype, Slack, Visual Studio Code.

My desktop native resolution is 2560 x 1440. DPI setting is %100.

OS: Windows 10 Pro x64, Version: 1803 Build 17134.285

What I have tried:

  • Right click to an app > Properties > set compatibility mode
  • Turn on "Let Windows try to fix apps so they're not blurry" in Settings > Display > Advanced Scaling Settings
  • Set custom scaling to 100
  • Sign in & out etc.

Nothing seems to solve my issue. If I have an app open in full screen, then I bring up another app for example Task Manager (but not in full screen), if I resize the Task Manager, the app that is in the background blurs out almost completely.

How can I solve this issue that makes most of the apps unusable?

  • What is your video adapter and which driver do you use? Your computer model might also be useful.

  • In Settings > Personalization > Colors, under More option, is Transparency effects set to Off? Have you installed NVIDIA latest driver?
