If you bought Windows Vista and you just can’t stand the ClearType font that it defaults to you are not alone. When Microsoft first gifted us with IE7 on XP we had the option of using ClearType or disabling it for the normal fonts we were used too.
However, on Vista you don’t get the choice as it defaults to on. Many may not even realize the font is different, though some find it blurry and just plain dislike it. If you are amongst the haters of ClearType don’t fret you can disable it and get your standard fonts back by following the instructions on the next page.
- Right click on a blank area of your Vista desktop
- Click personalize
- Click Window Color and Appearance
- Click the link at the bottom of the page that says “Open classic appearance properties for more color options”
- Click the effects button
- Either uncheck the box that says “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts” or choose standard from the drop down list rather than the default ClearType
- Click OK
- Click Apply
- Click OK again and you are done
