  1. Doesn’t work. I hate Windows 8.1! Yesterday was a good old sharp text and
    now after updating is terrible. I already did 100 times like shown on the
    video.

  2. widnows 8.1 suxs

  3. Windows Registry editing fixed the font thickness issue for me perfectly,
    we can tune the font thickness/darkness by calibrating FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA
    value to between 150 and 190 hexadecimal( 336 to 400 decimal )

    – START -> RUN -> REGEDIT
    – search for FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA by keying ” Ctrl F ” ( will automatically
    take us to CurrentUserControlPanelDesktop path)
    – double-click mouse on FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA enter anything between 150 and
    190 hexadecimal.(the Lower the value, the thicker the fonts.)
    – close the REGEDIT tool
    – LOGOFF and then LOGON

    Now all the fonts are very thick & very dark in Chrome Browser.

    But we must make sure that ClearType smoothing is enabled in Windows(
    controlPanel -> personalization -> appearance -> Effects -> ClearType
    smooth check [ ticked box ] )

    OR alternately in RegEdit …

    FONTSMOOTHING=2
    FONTSMOOTHINGTYPE=2
    FONTSMOOTHINGORIENTATION=1 for LCD-screen, 0 for CRT-screen

    Note: MicrosoftClearTypeTuner minimum GAMMA value is 1000 maximum 2200
    decimal.

  4. This fixed my work application right away. Thanks for the tip.

  5. Worked for me on Google Picasa. Many thanks!

  6. i have windows 8 and it is not working

  7. Is there a way to apply this setting globally for all my applications? It’s
    just annoying to have to find the .exe for every program with this issue.

  8. Yay! This completely fixed my iTunes problem :D

  9. Do I seriously have to do this for every single Program?

  10. My problem is with system fonts being too blurry. I have a full HD screen
    on a 13″ laptop. 

  11. Right click -> Screen resolution -> Make text and other items larger or
    smaller -> check, let me choose one scaling level for all my displays ->
    choose smaller – 100% (default)

  12. Thanks!

  13. fok you windows!

  14. but the chrome tabs and fonts turned very small

  15. I don’t want to fix individual apps. I want it disabled system wide.

  16. thanks! 😀 i fixed it on itunes, utorrent also, those programs was very
    blurry

  17. TY sir!

    sites offered no help, thanks again!

    programs and not the whole computer.

  23. tnx….dawg ur a life saver

  24. Thank you!!! I was going crazy trying to figure out what was wrong with my
    Google Chrome :))

  25. Thank you so much, Poolarity. This was really helpful. I’d like to ask you
    a question: After making that change on Google Chrome, if you maximize both
    browsers, is everything as big on Chrome as it is on Internet Explorer?

    Thanks!
