I have noticed that, along with other applications, Spotify now looks blurry after upgrading to Windows 8.1. Here's a comparison between a normal File Explorer window and Spotify's.

This appears to be a known problem with Win 8 according to this article. There's a link there to the official Microsoft thread.

Hey I already found a solution, it has to do with the new DPI scaling system in Windows 8.1

Its not just spotify that is blurry, most applications are blurry after updating to windows 8.1. Applications like Google chrome and even the installation application is blurry. I believe it's Microsoft's fault. To solve this problem, I had factory reset my computer, which puts me back to windows 8

@Malik822 I guess you didn't bother to read the article FrankFontaine linked us to then?
