Default Poor graphics PT 2018.4 on Windows 10 Pro

I am very disappointed in respect to the looks of PT2018.4 on Windows 10 Pro, is this normal that fonts etc are a little blurry compared to PT on Mac?

Gaston

PROBLEM SOLVED

1) Right click on the Pro Tools app (in program folder)
2) Select Compatibility Tab
3) Enable/Tick "Override high DPI scaling behaviour.

Are you using the same monitor? Have you checked your resolution? I would guess you are also using the built in video card on your motherboard and not a dedicated graphics card? All these can affect this unfortunately.

Check your Display Settings for scaling and monitor resolution options.

How do you have the monitor connected? VGA, DVI (is it Dual-Link), Display Port?

And what is the resolution of the monitor?

And are you sure the monitor is using the NVidia card and not the Intel built-in (if it's available)?

The monitor as a Dell Ultrasharp U2515 and works fine, the rest of the graphics on Windows look OK; it is just PT2018 that does not look as good as on my Mac, first I thought I was forgot my reading glasses ;-(

You are using an old cheap video card.
