Adjusting ClearType Text In Windows 7

ClearType Text is a software technology developed by Microsoft that improves the readability of text on a monitor. With ClearType font technology, the text on the computer screen looks almost as sharp and clear as those printed on a piece of paper.

While ClearType is a Microsoft technology, a similar feature is available for Apple's Mac computers.
