    Fonts changed by Windows or microsoft keyboard technology?


    Hi guys,

    A pop-up window changed how I read the fonts on all the websites I visit. It said it was from Microsoft or Windows keyboard technology or something. The window displayed a text and asked me to choose which one I preferred, then after five consecutive types of fonts, it closed. Now the letters on all the sites I visit are customized to a font I don't like and I don't know how to change it back. Please help. Thank you.

    Hello gis3ly,

    Welcome to the TenForums

    This sounds a little bit like the Cleartype setup screens. To see if you have Cleartype turned on type cleartype in the search box and review the settings in Adjust Cleartype text. Turn it off if it is making the fonts worse or try and adjust them again.

    Yes! It was Cleartype. I went crazy searching for it lol. I just turned it off and everything looks good again. Thank you so much, philc43.
