If you're using Microsoft's newest version of its operating system, Windows 10, you probably like its improvements over Windows 8, which, among other things, didn't have the Start button you've been using for years. Windows 10 brought that back, and made several other improvements.

However, one tiny change you may have noticed isn't so great. If you increase the size of the fonts on Windows 10, so that it's easier to read your computer screen, the fonts sometimes get blurry.

In older versions of Windows, if you increased the DPI (dots per inch) scaling to 125% or more, your fonts would get larger and easier to read. Note: This is most effective with a computer screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, or higher.

Unfortunately, some users of Windows 10 are finding that fonts get blurry when you do that. There are a couple of easy fixes, though.
