Oh, and as far as video drivers, this is a newly installed laptop.  It's relatively new hardware, a Lenovo T570 with a July BIOS and drivers updated in September.  I suppose I can try updating again to see what I get.

It's just really annoying.  I'll grab some screen shots when I get a moment.

I've never had trouble with that, then again I've not seen the problem with the laptop (Win10) either.

Video Driver update?

Subject: Windows 10, laptops and blurry iACS fonts

I've got a laptop that is normally docked with a couple of large monitors and iACS works flawlessly.  But when I use the laptop's screen, the fonts are blurry, especially if I make the window smaller than the entire display.  I've tried a number of things, from switching fonts (between IBM3270 and Consolas, which is my favorite for RDi) to trying the various High DPI related fixes from the Intertubes.  Nothing seems to work.  It's really annoying when I'm trying to capture screens when I'm on the road.

Windows 7 never had this issue, nor did Access for Windows.

Has anybody else dealt with issue successfully?
