I have no words to describe the mess Microsoft created in the font rendering in Windows 10. Just look at this explorer window. Some elements like title bar and address bar have a grayscale antialiasing, the rest has cleartype enabled. Ok, let's open ClearType Tuner and select a third option on a third page which is a grayscale cleartype. And guess what, it's still the same! This tool has no effect at all on the cleartype's color settings. Disabling cleartype is no option, as the text becomes a total mess. So the question is: How can I force Windows to use that grayscale cleartype smoothing method on all of the GUI elements? If this is some kind of a new font used on the titlebars, can I use it on the other elements by editing aero.msstyle or shellstyle.dll? p.s. The reason of my post is that I use one display with RGB matrix and the other with BGR, So I have to constantly switch the cleartype's sub pixel matrix to get rid of blurred fonts.
