    Hello, so I got a new computer (Lenovo Y520) and I love it. GTX 1050Ti, 16GB RAM, 256PCie SSD 2tb HDD, i7 7700HQ.

    The one problem that I see is that some text in some programs look a little fuzzy/blurry. Text in System settings and chrome is fine, but applications like uTorrent really isn't.

    The picture above isn't a really good example but it looks a little fuzzy on my screen. I have a second monitor hooked up via USB and when I drag the application to the second monitor it looks crisp.

    Do you know of any solution?

    The screen dpi is most likely zoomed to fit a easily readable size. Simply go to graphic settings and reduce it to 100%. I had the same issue before.

    Right click on desktop and open the graphic panel from it. If my memory is correct (not on my pc at the moment, cannot confirm). There should be a screen setting with the resolution and dpi scroll bars.

    This is not the one to open. It should be labeled "Display Settings" with a screen icon.
    It should show this window

    Ok I'm there. What dpi should I change it to? I tried 100% but then the windows are small and I don't like that.

    That makes them smaller indeed, but nothing will be blurry anymore. Levels above 100% make things zoomed in, and the graphics get filtered in a blurry way. So that's the best I could recommend really.

    If 100% is too small for you, then your only choice is to increase the percentage and deal with some parts of some applications being blurry because of the zoom.

    It's not a big deal anyways. I'll just deal with it.

    Well you didn't really mention anything else. Is there anything that doesn't have an alternative?
