Font smoothing means no jagged edges to them. When It is enabled, the edges of large TrueType fonts become anti-aliased.

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 "1". This enables the setting. Logoff your system.

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