So I have recently upgraded to a Windows ultrabook with a high resolution display. All my software seems to cope just fine with the high resolution, except for Mathematica 10. Mathematica seems to pretend the screen resolution is lower, and blurs both frontend text and graphics output.

How can I configure the interface to display crisp text?

Does this help? –  mfvonh Aug 25 '14 at 5:37
Which version of Windows are you running? –  Mr.Wizard Aug 25 '14 at 6:34
Also, this seems to be closely related: (18419). I don't know if Mathematica 10 for Windows supports high-PPI displays. –  Mr.Wizard Aug 25 '14 at 6:36
Actually there are many programs that have trouble with scaling on high resolution displays. At least Mathematica displays everything correctly and at a readable size, even if blurry. I don't believe there is a user-end solution here. We'll need to wait until Wolfram starts supporting high resolution displays on Windows. –  Szabolcs Mar 12 at 20:39
@Szabolcs Following the maxim of "don't answer in comments" perhaps you should post that properly? No other answer has been forthcoming. –  Mr.Wizard Mar 12 at 21:02
