This how to will show you how to turn on or off the Clear Type Text Tuner and how to use it to make the text displayed on your screen sharp and clear, making it easier to read. By default ClearType is turned on in Windows 7.
To get the full benefit of ClearType, you'll need a flat panel monitor/TV such as LCD, LED or Plasma. You might notice a small improvement in readability when using ClearType with a CRT monitor.
1. Open the Start menu.
2. In the search box type cttune.exe and press enter.
3. By default the Turn on ClearType box is checked, to turn ClearType off, uncheck the box (See screenshot below)
4. If you have multiple monitors, select to tune one or all of them and click on next (see screenshot below)
5. If like me you only have one monitor for the next step in the wizard Windows checks to make sure that your monitor is operating at it's native resolution. If it's not set to it's native resolution you have the option to either change to the native resolution or keep your current resolution. For multiple monitor setups the wizard tells you which monitor/s is not operating at it's native resolution and gives you the same options as detailed above. For me my monitor is already to set to it's native resolution so this is what came up for me.
6. Click on the text that looks best to you, then click next (see screenshot below)
7. Click on the text that looks best to you and click next (see screenshot below)
8. Click on the text that looks best to you, then click next (see screenshot below)
9. Click on the text that looks best to you, then click next (see screenshot below)
10. Click on finish (see screenshot below)
If you selected to tune all monitors (step 4), then you will need to click next instead and repeat steps 5 to 9 again for your other monitor.
