Windows 8.1 Chrome Blurry Text

A lot of people have noticed after updating their OS to the new Windows 8.1 beta build that Chrome does display correctly.  All of the text and edges appear blurry at best.  This can be very frustrating, especially if you are used to enjoying web browsing on a FHD 1080p screen.  Fortunately there is an easy fix.

**Notice the sharpness of the programs in the taskbar versus the text on the screen.

1. Right click on the Chrome Icon
2. Select Properties
3. Navigate to to the Compatibility Tab
4. In the Settings field, select Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings

And that's it!  Now you should be able to run Chrome normally again!
