I'm using the latest version of Windows 11 with GTX 3080TI.

After a while, all the icons in the windows explorer get all blurry like in a lower resolution I have 2k Samsung Odessey G5 display.
The only solution I've found is to reset the Windows Explorer which puts the icons back to normal, but after a while they'll get all blurry again.

After long investigation I found that if you switch off the Explorer details/preview pane the problem will disappear and do not come back.

I understand it is a bug in Windows 11 maybe someone has a solution because I want to use the details/preview pane in file explorer but right now I just can.

It looks like windows is choosing the wrong ico size, and unscaling it to fit the resolution.

It looks like windows is choosing the wrong ico size, and unscaling it to fit the resolution.

I tried Rebuild Icon Cache and it temporarily fix the problem the only solution I found to fix the problem once and for all is by switching off the Explorer details/preview pane but like I said above I am trying to find a solution that would let me use the preview pane.

Without messing with the scaling under display options, that's all I have unfortunately.
