Enable cleartype font smoothing

This setting enables cleartype font smoothing.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows Vista
“ClearType” is a font-enhancement technology that is capable of making fonts appear clearer. This font smoothing method gives better results on LCD display with Windows, if the contrast value is adjusted between 900-1100. However, because “ClearType” still includes antialiasing support, you may see some improvement when you enable “ClearType” on a CRT screen.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If any of the subkeys “\ControlPanel\Desktop\” is not present, create it as explained below. Create a REG_SZ string value name "FontSmoothing" (if this value doesn't exist). Right Click on the Option “FontSmoothing”, and from the drop down menu, select Modify. In the Modify dialog box, enter value data
"2". Now, search for DWORD value name "FontSmoothingType", create if not existing. Right-click on it and modify the value data with "0". This enables the setting. Logoff your system.

For disabling, just set "0" in both registry entries.
