How to make text on a laptop screen easier to read

August 28th, 2011 by WordPlop

If you have a small laptop screen or are using a netbook, the text on your screen is probably difficult to read. There is an easy way to make the text more visible, and it’s called ClearType. I have covered how to use ClearType text on Windows XP, so here is the updated version for Windows 7.

ClearType is very easy to use in Windows 7 because it comes built into the operating system. Just follow these steps to turn it on:

1. Open Control Panel by clicking Start > Control Panel

2. Click on Appearance and Personalization

3. Click on Adjust ClearType text

4. Check the box for Turn on ClearType, and then click Next as you follow the instructions to pick the best looking text for your screen

And that’s all there is to it. I recommend picking the darkest setting during the last step, especially if you are on a netbook.
