Notes client 11.0.1 in Windows 10 is blurred at scale and layout display 125%

I received a request to resolve the following issue.

After upgrading the Notes client from 9.0.1 to 11.0.1 on a Windows 10 laptop and the recommended display of 125% (Scale and layout), the Notes client and all applications were a bit blurry. The same problem can be reproduced when set to 150%

The solution is to modify the Notes client startup:

  1. Right-click the “HCL Notes” icon or “notes.exe” file and select “Properties”
  2. Select the “Compatibility” tab
  3. Click to button “Change high DPI settings”
  4. Check “Override high DPI scaling behavior” and select in “Scaling performed by”: “Application”. Confirm “OK”
  5. Start the Notes client and check the display

  1. This is due to some changes in W10, not in Notes. I have seen this also in Notes 9.0.1 versions moving from Win7 to W10. Normally changing the settings for the notes2.exe solves the problem.
