The main issue with windows 10 is the poor display features . Firstly many text , icon, windows decoration are quite hard on the eyes in high resolution display as they tend to blur.Secondly some desktop icon does not scale properly on high DPI display.The problem strikes when you have a screen with a resolution of 1920 x1080 or higher. The high resolution setting cause the fonts to become blurry / unfocused .Sadly , the display setting in Windows 10 does not have any option to sharpen the text and bring them into focus .At this resolution most users tend to set the DPI scaling to at least 125 % to make the font easier to read. But in case of windows 10 when the DPI scaling is set to 125 the text become blurry. To make picture and apps look attractive pixels are densely packed into small screen. This is the reason that some desktop programs which are not designed to run at high resolution looks small and hence are difficult to run at a higher resolution. The fuzzy text problem crops up as windows 10 uses a different scaling method for DPI.
