Some legacy programs such as Photoshop look horrible on Windows 8 and 8.1. This is because they have been designed for low resolution displays. Windows tries to scale them up to a higher resolution but this can result in an application looking blurry.

To stop Windows from doing this, right-click on the executable file of the application, go to the Compatibility tab and tick the box marked “Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.” Then restart the program.

The issue is with DPI scaling. For any program that gives you blurry font, use the following steps:

Right-click on the program’s icon -> Properties -> Compatibility -> “Disable display scaling on high
DPI settings”.

Then close the program and restart.
