I figured it out. It required multiple tweaks and restarts, but it is finally working. Thank you for your help.

God to hear, did you need to divert from the steps given in the post? If so we would like to know how!

If you can detail what you did maybe it'll help others in the future.

There is actually an easy fix that corrects ALL java applications in Windows 10!

1) Find the Java you are using...
For example: C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin

2) For both java.exe and javaw.exe
a) Right click and select Properties
b) Go to the Compatability tab
c) Check ON Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by: System

3) Viola!
