Is there a way to turn on/off anti-aliasing in Notepad++, either through settings or a certain plug-in?

Similar to Turn off anti-aliasing for text in MS Paint. – Peter Mortensen Feb 13 '14 at 13:44

Notepad++ uses the same settings as the rest of the applications on the system. There isn't any setting within it to change this.

P.S.: If you are having issues with blurry text on DPI settings higher than 96 DPI on Windows Vista/7, turn on "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" on program's "Compatibility" tab.

Hi. you are right. Although a different font problem, I solved it by tweaking Windows options. Thanks! – Dan7 Aug 31 '10 at 21:48
