A good number of Windows 8.1 users have been complaining that the Chrome browser looks quite blurry in Windows 8.1. We go through all the complaints and also suggest a few simple fixes
Yet another Windows 8.1 problem is affecting users of the Chrome browser – now, a good number of them is reporting that the images and fonts look blurry in the Chrome browser. A while ago we were reporting that the mouse wheel was not working in the Chrome browser for some users and not it seems to be affecting the resolution.
Here are some of the complains:
I recently installed Windows 8 and i noticed that the screen puts a lot of strain on my eyes compared to Windows 7. It seems like the screen/text is blurry/fuzzy a bit putting strain on my eyes. It is not as crisp as it was in Windows 7. Almost too powerful? Anyone else experiencing this issue?
I updated Windows 8 to the Windows 8.1 Preview last night. I’m using a high-resolution Samsung SMS27A850 display (2560×1440). I noticed immediately that Chrome looks sort of blurry/fuzzy. It looked crisp in the previous version of Windows.
The solution to this annoying problem is quite simple, and here’s what you have to do. The problem is apparently caused by display scaling, and here’s how to fix it in Chrome. Right click on Chrome>properties> compatibility> disable scaling. That’s it! And you can do this not only for Chrome, but any other application or software that might seem blurry.
