    I followed a YouTube video to help my computer run faster. Deleted all temporary files, removed some things at startup. I have no idea what I did to make all words appear blurry in windows 10 and on other places like chrome. Please help

    What YouTube video did you follow along with?

    You may have inadvertently changed your display resolution. Can you provide information the computer and the monitor? Make and model will help us.

    Since you are running Windows 8 Relocated to the proper section.

    Be careful with some of these videos some things that work for them usually do not work for everyone. If you are unsure about something that is supposedly going to speed up your system please ask.

    Some times it works other times it is snake oil.

    This should clear the blurriness you are having.

    Ok bring back up the screen that you have in the "system properties" (the same you have above).

    On the left side click "Advance System Settings"
    Under the "Advanced" Tab
    Select the Button next to "Let Windows Choose......."
    Click OK
    Reboot and let us know.
