The Microsoft Corporation owns the trademark for ClearType technology, which works in conjunction with the company's Internet Explorer 7 browser. Many hardware display devices, including laptops and other hand-held electronics, use this multimedia graphics function. People use the IE7 browser to visit a variety of websites. The developers of these Web pages can employ whatever font they desire, but you, the end user, might not be able to see these clearly in your browser. ClearType makes adjustments for this deficiency. However, if you prefer not to use ClearType, you can disable the feature.
Click "Tools" on the right side of IE7. Select "Internet Options" from the menu.
Click the "Advanced" tab in the dialog box. Drag the scroll bar down to find the "Multimedia" section.
Remove the check mark from the box next to "Always Use Clear Type for HTML."
Click "Apply" and "OK" to save your changes, and close the Internet Options dialog box.
Exit the IE7 browser and then reopen it, to verify that ClearType has been disabled.
