Fix Chrome blurry fonts on Lenovo Yoga 2 13

One of the first things I do on a new laptop is install Google Chrome. Sadly, Chrome and Windows 8 do not play well on even moderately high-resolution laptop screens :-(

Case in point, my new Lenovo Yoga 2 13 (not the pro model) has a 1920×1080 13.3″ display which is fairly pedestrian by today’s pixel density standards. Regardless, Chrome fonts look very blurry when compared to IE or most other Win8 applications.

Solution: adjust Chrome properties

Go to Desktop mode

Right-click on the Chrome icon, select “Properties”

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings (check this box and apply!)

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings (check this box and apply!)


Restart Chrome if necessary and that should do the trick :-) Enjoy your nice Lenovo laptop!
