Laptops tend to have high resolution screens and small size, so it can be tempting to rescale everything up. In display settings are you scaling fonts at something other than 100%? That might be the reason.

It might also be that you are running the screen at something other than its native resolution. I believe this second possibility is the more likely to produce blurry fonts.

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?
