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


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

Settings > Preferences > Editing > Enable smooth font.

    This worked for me. Other applications on Windows were fine but Notepad++ looked like Windows 3.1 before I flipped this switch! – CResults Sep 25 '18 at 16:22
