    If you haven't
    rebooted Windows since the installation of the latest Quicken update, please do
    that first and try Quicken again.

    Font size problems? Display issues? (Windows)

    Please try this:

    1. Close Quicken !!! (This
      process won't work while Quicken is running!)
    1. Check the Compatibility tab
      settings in your Quicken Desktop program icon:
    • In the Windows Start Menu
      right-click the Quicken icon. Select "Open File Location". This
      brings up a Windows File Explorer window. Right-click the highlighted
      Quicken shortcut line item.

    • Go to the traditional Windows
      Desktop and right-click the Quicken program icon.
    1. Now click Properties.
    1. Select the Compatibility tab.
    1. Uncheck all settings.
    1. Windows 7, 8.1: Check
      "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". 

      Windows 10:  Check
      "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:" and
      select "Application" 
      (also try the other available options)
    1. Be sure to uncheck the
      "Run this program in compatibility mode for [older Windows
      version]" setting.
    1. Click the "Change
      settings for all users" button.
    1. Click Apply and exit.
    1. Now start Quicken and see if
      that makes a difference.

    Some additional
    tuning suggestions:

    Unless absolutely required, try not to use "View / Use large

    Try setting the bank account registers to use a different font style or size:
    in Edit / Preferences / Register click the Fonts button and try different

    Try adjusting the bank account registers' row height: in Edit / Preferences /
    Register choose among the available Row Height choices: Compact, Comfortable or

    If all else fails, try changing Windows Control Panel / Display options for
    "Make text and other items ... smaller or larger" to use a different
    scaling level.

    Thanks for your time, I have tinkered with all the aforementioned settings and its just not the way it was before but will suffice.
  • I've got the same problem. I've done the above and no material change. I prefer look of  Quicken 2016.

    Thank you for this response! I just did a clean install of Quicken 2019 on a new Windows 10 laptop, and everything was blurry (legible, but weirdly blurry). Your steps solved it! Much appreciated.

    This worked!  Thanks in particular for starting with 'Close Quicken'...other sites didn't bother to say so.

    Still blurry on 55 inch LCD, Was not blurry before upgrade, no other programs are blurry, it's only Quicken. Any new suggestions?
