  1. Sound is not great, but this thing works, tested. And values are powers of 12.. because full HD screen 1920×1080 divided by 12 is 160×90.. so scaling values in HEX are actually 96, 120, 144, 168, 192 points, not 100, 125, 150.. So for perfect scaling you need to find good value for your monitor resolution.

  2. Why does my Chrome not show a "incompatibilities tab" also where do I get those scripts do I copy type them out from the screen. I wish these people could watch someone follow their directions so they could see how poorly they explain things.

  3. Microsoft shouldn't have changed the scaling method, just stick to one method so that app developers have the chance to optimise their apps for the current version of Windows and not make it blurry!

  4. Just bought a new Asus with intel and nvidia graphic. It's a FreeDOS product so i did installation by myself and found the device manager, steam, IDM,etc (Not every software) look blurry and its my first time using Win10. Can you help me ? maybe i did something wrong on that installation or missing something that i should set or adjust ? Thanks

  5. Thank you.   This was absolutely useful, helpful and it is great to finally see text that is not blurry!  The quick fix, easy instructions and your detailed manner by which you explained it was very easy to follow.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
