    Hi, so I recently got a second monitor and noticed, that the ClearType subpixels were absolutely fucked on my second monitor. At first, I thought it was the monitor's issue, then I fiddled around for a while, trying to make things better with ClearType tuner which turned out to be completely useless since it didn't change anything. Finally, I decided to switch my monitors and turns out, ClearType just doesn't want to work on a second monitor and everything is always fine on the first monitor. Solid text looks fine, but folder/file names and anything interactable with text on it just looks completely and utterly fucked. Below is a zoomed in example of what it looks like.

  3. 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 Windows ClearType fucked on second monitor :pimp:

    Issues while installing a second monitor in Windows 10

    Really? I get a canned answer and nothing else? I posted that I had tried everything that I could find posted online. I did read the post that Andre suggested multiple times prior to posting this request for help. None of it helped.

    My computer does not recognize that there is a second monitor is plugged in. The small step of changing the settings so I can put stuff on the second monitor ISN'T the issue. I am not that dumb. in the device manager there is only the single monitor listed
    at one point there was a unknown device listed but my computer did not know if it was a monitor or a printer.

    There has to be someone out there that knows how to fix this

    Please Help
