    Win 10 Fonts Look Bad Even With True Type Selected


    Hello, I've just set up Win 10 on a new computer and I'm noticing that the Text looks very bad even with True Type selected. I've gone through the True Type settings a couple of times to select the best looking settings. I have another Win 10 computer connected to this Monitor and it looks much better. This system has "Intel HD Graphics Family Chipset" and the other system has "Intel 4 Series Express Chipset". Any ideas how I can make the Text look better on this system ? Thank you in advance for any help.

    :)

  2. MS Office OUTLOOK and Win 10 OS 1709

    Thank you, Anne. That is bad news. The best OS version of Win 10 was 1607 which kept all fonts true and kept Control Panel. 1703 dropped Control Panel and the ability of the user to change font. With 1709 we have CPanel back but lost DISPLAY option
    in it and have to use Winaero, which is not entirely successful.

    I will record my protest but what on earth is at the bottom of chucking out useful functions? Is it a dearth of IT talent at MS, is it not understanding fundamentally what is useful?

    Does 6681 support true type fonts?

    Use your favourite Internet search engine (Google, or whatever) and search for "freetype.dll" and proceed from there.

    Is your display set to the default recommended values?

    If your DPI scaling is set to 125%, try changing it to 100% and see what happens.

    Yes, the text might be smaller but it should be clear.

    Thanks, my scaling was / is set to 100% and the Monitor at the recommended resolution.

    Hopefully someone else will chime in with additional things for you to try.

    good luck,

    Thanks, doesn't look like there is a cure. Actually I have noticed that it's more with Windows elements like toolbar text and the settings window you posted above than it is with text on forums. Part of the issue is I've been using Linux Mint 18.1 to surf the net lately and I'm shocked at how much better it looks than Windows 10. After using Mint for awhile and going back to Windows things looks raw and pixelated even on the same computer / monitor setup.
