surefire Posted April 27, 2005 Share Posted April 27, 2005 I was reading a blog the other day and there was a reference to something called 'Clear Type'. I followed the link to the Microsoft site and read a little blurb about a neat trick to make text easier on the eyes. I have used it for the past several days and it has been so much easier to put in long hours. (I apologize in advance if I'm the last person surfing the internet to discover this. But I didn't see any posts regarding this.) If you have XP, you can try it in just a few steps: 1- Right click on desktop 2- Choose 'Properties' 3- Choose 'Appearance' 4- Click 'Effects' button in bottom right corner 5- Under 'Use the following method to smooth... yada yada', choose 'Clear Type' Click Ok, ok Enjoy. Last thing. You web developers out there might want to remember to view your websites with Clear Type off so you are sure to see it as most will see your site. AFAIK, XP defaults to Clear Type off, so it would seem that most don't know about it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
