4. Close the Effects dialog by clicking OK and click Apply to complete the process.
Note: Original Equipment Manufacturers that pre-install Windows have the option of setting the ClearType default to on or off. If you install Windows yourself, ClearType will be turned on by default on Windows 7 and Windows Vista and turned off by default on Windows XP.
