Enable Font Smoothing on Welcome Screen

Windows XP have a new feature called "Clear Type" which is designed to make fonts readable on LCD and low resolution screens in a better way. This tweak allows you to enable font smoothing on Welcome screen (it is normally disabled).

Navigate to:
User Key: HCU\Control Panel\Desktop
System Key: HU\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

Set the value of "FontSmoothing" to "2" and the value of "FontSmoothingType" to "2" to enable Font Smoothing.

Note: Restart Windows for the change to take effect.


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
