The complete GUI including all text, looks blurry when I run QBDT in a high-resolution laptop
Display resolution is 2560 x 1440 (recommended by the OS)
When I connect the computer to bigger monitor running 1080 x 920, everything looks sharp and fine.
What can be done on the laptop to resolve it?
I have some settings that I can recommend to fix the issue, EBFinancials.
Changing your default settings to get the best results may resolve your blurry monitor. To do this, you'll have to change the display settings first. I've added some steps below for your guide:
Once done, you can try opening QuickBooks. If you're still getting the issue, proceed to the steps below to adjust your view preferences:
If it still doesn't resolve the issue, change your Window display settings. Here's how:

I) I don't have Disable display scaling on high DPI settings but Disable fullscreen optimizations. Are they the same?
II) When checking Override high DPI scaling behavior, there are three (3) options to choose from:
Application, System and System (Enhanced). Which one should be chosen?
After applying all the changes in your instructions, the blurry view was indeed resolved, BUT, other issues occurs - Some parts of the GUI is very small (so small to be read by human eye). Examples for parts that this occurs at: The text PAID [Date] at the top left corner when opening an invoice, or the colorful section below the My Shortcuts pane
So I guess there is no way to achieve optimal view on this monitor I am using.
It is NOT 1024 x 768 or 1920 x 1080 as recommended by you but 2560 x 1440 (High Resolution).
I guess this resolution is too high for the program and nothing can be resolve it.
I didn't try your part of Window display settings as the recommended setting by the system is the high one (2560 x 1440). If I choose what you suggest it will mess up other programs that run at the same time.
I'll help you choose the appropriate settings to use, @EBFinancials.
I appreciate all your efforts so far in resolving blurred vision. It's my pleasure to provide the differences between the various settings you've mentioned. This way, I can guide you accordingly.
The Disable display scaling on high DPI will use the usual behavior of your computer. Applications that don't respect system DPI settings will be bitmap stretched to appear sizeable, so it is easily readable. Inversely, Full-Screen optimization is a feature on Windows devices that helps them function better. This will enhance the CPU and GPU resources for a particular process. That said, the two settings are more likely the same.
Also, the difference between the 3 DPI override scaling behavior options is as follows:
With this, I'd recommend choosing the appropriate setting that will conform to your computer.
Regarding the interface, which is very small, I recommend using the One Window view. By doing so, you can see your buttons and menus easily. You can follow the steps provided by my peer above.
Moreover, you have an option to reach an IT professional regarding the display parameters of your computer window. They can come up with options on this matter.
Lastly, I've collected some of our resources that you can use for reference in case you can encounter some screen issues in your QBDT:
