Fix for blurry editor fonts in Windows 10

I've found that I get blurry fonts in the SAS editor in Windows 10 (with cleartype on and font scaling set to 175%). (SAS version 9.4 (TS1M3)). I believe this is because Windows 10 uses a different DPI scaling method than earlier versions. This fix works for me:

Start SAS. Right-click on the icon on the taskbar. Right-click on the SAS icon that pops up. Choose Properties, then Compatibility. Tick 'Override high DPI scaling behaviour' and choose Scaling performed by: Application. Restart SAS.

I have no use for this as I am thankfully not using W10, but thank you for posting.

I am sure it will help someone.
