What is ClearType?
ClearType is a software technology developed by Microsoft that improves the readability of text on existing LCDs (Liquid Crystal Displays), such as laptop screens, Pocket PC screens and flat panel monitors. With ClearType font technology, the words on your computer screen look almost as sharp and clear as those printed on a piece of paper.
How to enable ClearType
– Right click on the Desktop and choose Properties
– Go to the Appearance Tab and click on the Effects button
– Put a tick in the “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts” checkbox
– In the dropdown menu select “ClearType”
Although ClearType works pretty fine on CRT monitors, it is designed for LCD screens and gives the best results on such. I don’t advice you to use t on on CRT monitors, but you are welcome to try it
