SMOOTH TEXT IN OLDER WINDOWS COMPUTERS
On old versions of Windows like the XP box I am using to post this blog, there is an issue with blocky text. This is most prevalent when you hit the web or start to type things into Word. To make the text nice and smooth follow the example above. Right click on the desk top and select "Properties". Click the "Appearance tab". Then click Effects and in the effects dialog check off the box you see in the image above and select "Clear Type". Apply the settings and nice smooth text from now on. Different versions have a slightly different layout, but you can find it I'm sure. This however might not work in Chrome as some of the older versions had a bug that ignored Clear Type settings.
