Fix SSMS Blur Issue In High DPI Displays

Today, I tried to install "SQL Server 2016 developer edition" in my laptop. After successful installation of SQL Server Management Studio, I noticed that the icons and the text in the SSMS are looking blurry which is unusual.

To overcome this issue, we should enable the "Disable display scaling on high DPI" settings which can be done from the SQL Server Management Studio properties section.

In SQL Server Management Studios Properties -> click on Compatibility tab -> under Settings section-> check the Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.

Click on Apply and run the SSMS application.

Yeah! It’s cool. Now, the SSMS is opened without any blur in text and menu icons.
