Power BI text is blurry and choppy

Any ideas why Power BI Desktop text is blurry and choppy while all other applications on my monitor look fine?  Are there any settings I can do in Power BI to fix this?

Re: Power BI text is blurry and choppy

Hi @ISUGraber ,

You can try the following methods:

1. Adjust the ClearType or Display resolution. The following list provides the minimum Display requirements to run Power BI Desktop

(1) Display: At least 1440x900 or 1600x900 (16:9) recommended. Lower resolutions such as 1024x768 or 1280x800 are not recommended, as certain controls (such as closing the startup screen) display beyond those resolutions.

(2) Windows Display settings: If your display settings are set to change the size of text, apps, and other items to more than 100%, you may not be able to see certain dialogs that must be closed or responded to in order to proceed using Power BI Desktop. If you encounter this issue, check your Display settings by going to Settings > System > Display in Windows, and use the slider to return display settings to 100%.

 

2. Fix apps that are blurry:

(1) Press the Start key and type the world blurry into the search bar that appears.

(2) In the dialog that appears, select the option: Let Windows fix apps that are blurry.

(3) Restart Power BI Desktop.

This issue may resolve after subsequent Windows updates are released

 

3. Refer to this post:Blurred and unreadable

 

For more information, you can view Get Power BI Desktop.
