    IE9: ClearType forced on

    Is your problem on this iiyama ProLite E2607WS-1 (1920x1200 26" LCD)? I'm surprised. Or are you operating the monitor in portrait mode?

    May i suggest setting display dpi to 120, then run cleartype tuner (download from MS)

    _______________________________

    Of course, we wouldnt need to bother with cleartype if we had higher pixel density displays! *Pimp Turn On or Off ClearType in Windows 10 :pimp:
