When I maximize my putty window, it looks fine, however, if I hit alt-enter to go fullscreen mode, the font dims. I've looked through putty and my display settings, and I can't find anything that seems to address it. How can I get the full-screen mode to look the same as the maximized window?
My LCD monitor was doing automatic brightness and contrast. I found this by playing with the monitor settings. When I hit the button for "Brightness/Contrast", it prompted me to turn off the auto mode so that it could be adjusted manually. I said yes to turn it off, but didn't actually adjust brightness/contrast. PuTTY now looks the same in fullscreen or otherwise.
