Is there a tool or something which can quickly enable or disable ClearType without going through the windows 7 ClearType-configuration dialog every time?

I need this because I have to make screenshots quite often and screenshots look blurred when ClearType is activated. And when ClearType is disabled everything looks blurred on my screen, so I usually enable it again after taking a screenshot.

I would suggest either of these options :

  • Enable/disable Cleartype using a tool called Cleartype Switch
  • Using cttune by running the command C:\Windows\System32\cttune.exe

Cleartype Switch is exaclty what I was looking for. – peq Jun 15 '11 at 12:13
Your second suggestion is just running the control panel applet - so not saving the while multi-dialog sequence. Anyway, I was actually looking for the progname of that applet, so +1 for that. You can type cttune in the search box of the start menu and the applet will be found. – ysap Feb 9 '15 at 20:25
