I want to compare the ClearType settings on two different Windows 7 machines, is there a way I can find out what they are without going through the Windows 7 Clear Type Tuning tool (which will possibly change the settings)?

I'm also interested in any other settings which may affect the rendered size of a given font, the only one I've found so far is 'Custom DPI Setting' under Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display.

The old XP ClearType Tuner PowerToy still works in Windows 7 and here you have an advanced view, which shows you what values you use. So you can compare them easier.

That's the same clear type tuner as in Windows 7. – robertc Feb 14 '13 at 23:17
no, it has the advanced view. Start the file "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cttune.cpl" – magicandre1981 Feb 15 '13 at 5:34

This article should make the process simple for you. Just compare the registry values and change them as you'd like to.

Unfortunately I seem to have no entries for any of those registry values. – robertc Feb 15 '13 at 12:12
