    Clear Type Hard to Find?


    MS seem to want to bury Clear Type in the latest version. It's there if you search for it or run cttune.exe. However, I don't see Clear Type mentioned under Settings or the Control Panel. How are inexperienced users expected to know about Clear Type settings?

    Go to the Search box in Cortana and type in Clear Type. Tick on Clear Type and it should show up.

    Works for me.

    Perhaps hitting the key and typing "Clear T" is too complex?

    I did say in my original post I know how to run Clear Type. My point is that the feature is relatively hard to find (as is calibration). Most Windows 10 users are not going to know these features exist.

    Steve, I followed your lead and got . . . nothing. It's surprising that Windows search never heard of it. It's right there in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts, where it has always been. Maybe a glitch in my setup, but I can't find one.
