Enable font smoothing on the welcome screen (current user)

This setting lets you enable font smoothing on the Welcome screen, where it is normally disabled.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003
Windows XP has Clear Type feature, which makes fonts more readable on LCD and low resolution screens. The anti-aliasing font display technology makes this possible. This feature can be made enabled for individual user or as the default for all users. If you want to change then set the registry entry.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Then, create a string value name “FontSmoothing”, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value data box with “2”. Now, create a DWORD value name “FontSmoothingType”, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value data box with three options like

"0" > Disabled
"1" > Standard Type
"2" > Clear Type.

Click “OK” and close the registry editor.
