Disable ClearType font smoothing


There is no other feature that I have heard so much positive and negative feedback about than ClearType screen font smoothing.  Some users think this feature is great while other complain that it makes the text blurry and hard to read.  If you are one of those that do not like ClearType then this tweak is for you.

  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Control Panel and Desktop.
  3. Set FontSmoothingType to 1.
  4. Set FontSmoothing to 1.
  5. Reboot.


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
FontSmoothingType = 1
Set FontSmoothing = 1
