Sharpen Screen Text Fonts with ClearType Text Tuner

ClearType is a software technology developed by Microsoft. This technology improves text on LCD screens, which typically come with laptops, PDAs, and flat-panel monitors.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to use Windows 7’s ClearType Text Tuner, which will sharpen fonts and make writing look almost as good as it does on paper.

if your display was not optimized for clear fonts before, it will be now. I did notice a difference, but feel it is negligible. I hope this helps you.
