Windows 8.1 Everything is blurry and sized too large

I made the mistake of installing Windows 8.1 with the hope that it would fix some of the things I hate about Win8.  Foolish on my part.

Just about everything looked like shit after installation.  Things were sized wrong, text was blurry etc.

After mucking around for a few hours I finally found a fix.  Go to Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Display and select “Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays”.

Then, on the next screen, select Smaller – 100%

One more reboot and things (at least for me) looked back to normal.
