Fuzzy Fonts in Windows 11

I just tried to solution suggested in https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7923340/fuzzy-font-fix-for-windows-11

It almost works, but the "Annual View" of the Planning➔ Budget tab is messed up. When Application is chosen for the High DPI scaling override mode, the columns are collapsed too much. When System (Enhanced) is chosen, the headers of that view are missing. When "System" is chosen, the font is back to being fuzzy.

I can't wait for Quicken to support Windows 11 properly.

    Hello @jmwhite5,     

    We are sorry to hear about this problem with a lack of clarity in the text of the program. Thank you for letting us know about this here on the Quicken Community.

    I want to make sure: are you also only experiencing this issue on a laptop? Also, have you changed Font or Display settings to increased size within Quicken, itself, in any way?

    I look forward to your response. 

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared

    This has nothing to do with Windows 11 and everything to do with high resolution screens where people are using different resolutions and Windows scaling factors.  As such, these problems have been around for years, and it is unlikely that one day they are going to be magically fixed.  That's the whole point of the suggestions in the threads on how to maybe tweak settings to work around the problems.

    It is really ironic that the "Annual View" of the budget is one of the Quicken's newest GUI API interfaces.  Doesn't give you a harm feeling that Quicken Inc is going in the right direction.

    Note I believe the "compressed columns" problem is shown in this idea thread:

    I wish the developers would change it so that the user can control the size of the columns, but they have never done that.

    @UKR has one of the most extensive posts on all the workarounds, there might be something in it that will help:
