Fix Fuzzy or Blurry Text in Windows
In Widows 8, 8.1, and 10 (?) with a "high DPI" display, GTK apps' text looks fuzzy because GTK doesn't handle Windows' new API for dealing with pixel density in the displays.
To fix this in Zim, start with Zim running. Right-click on the taskbar entry for Zim.
Right-click on the Zim in the popup menu.
Open the "Properties" dialog box. Go to the "Compatibility" tab. Turn on the "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox.
Click "OK" and restart Zim.
This should work for all GTK apps, not just Zim. For me, the fonts are a little bit smaller, but not much.
