  2. Faded text on start screen and apps.

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for posting back with the details.

    I suggest that you launch the ClearType text tuner and adjust the display.

    To run this command please refer the following TechNet article and follow the suggestions.

    • To get to the ClearType take an entry to the
      Control Panel and select the Display option.
    • On the right pane of the Display window click on
      Adjust ClearType Text link.
    • A ClearType Text Tuner window will appear on your screen. Select the
      checkbox Turn on ClearType and click
      Next button to go to the next step
    • After turning on the ClearType
      Text Tuner, you will see five windows exhibiting the samples of the text that you wish to set.
    • So click Next on the following five sample windows by selecting your required text type.

    Hope this will help you. Keep us posted with the status of the issue to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    Display settings changed to enhance performance - crude basic text


    Hi there

    New to this and clueless so sorry in advance! I have a Sony Vaio laptop running windows 10, about 5 years old. It started to lag a lot so I looked up some ways to enhance performance. Read a few articles online and followed a few steps to speed up my laptop. I cleared out a lot of unnecessary programs and changed some display settings. This all resulted in better performance, but the text on my screen to be reset to crude, basic text. (screenshot attached) I now have a suspicion that this is bad for my eyes and I'm about to start an online course, so I want to change the settings back. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly what I did.
    Here's what my screen looks like

    Cannot change settings, all text faded and unclickable [​IMG]

    I know that I definitely unchecked this: Automatically manage paging file size for all drives
    (read it in an article and followed the steps exactly) and manually calculated paging file size for all drives. Would this have anything to do with my text problem?

    Any suggestions of what happened and how to fix it would be great.
    I'm also wondering if I change the settings back, if my laptop will return to it's previous slow speed, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
