New IPS LG 27gl83a-b with Freesync. Only using a single monitor and Hdmi cable that came with monitor. Did not use display port cable.
*I noticed text on open apps on Task bar and context menus quite dark.
I changed the Hertz rate to 60 from 100 in Windows. Looks much better now.
Not a gamer.

Also if I shut off Freesync Premium instead of changing HZ, that also helped.

Not running monitor at 2k resolution better for my eyes at 1920 x 1080.

Any explanation why what I did made a difference?

Cleartype (Cttune) did not help originally and I did not want to screw with Windows themes and fonts.

Thanks in advance.
Peter
