> Hello everyone,

When click-ing on different items on a form (especially on labels) the text become thicker and the colors loose their sharpness. Same thing applies when clicking on an image

The solution is to switch off Clear Type smoothing.

On XP open your settings and make the change as shown below. If it is Clear Type change to Standard and click OK.
