Tips & Tricks

Equipping your PC with an ultra high resolution displays sounds like a great idea, but it can mean text becomes very small, and as a result some people manually reduce their screen resolution to compensate. Unfortunately this then introduces another problem: if you run LCDs below their native resolution then text (and other objects) will inevitably become fuzzy.
The solution? Leave your LCD at its maximum resolution, but scale text and other objects up so they become easier to read, while also remaining sharp. You could do this in Vista, but Windows 7 now makes the process even easier. Click Start, type “DPIScaling” and press Enter, select the size increase you need – 125% or 150% – then click Apply and restart to see the results.
