# ClearType keeps turning off on Windows 7 over RDP

Every time I log onto the computer, ClearType is turned off. I can turn it on manually, but after the session ends, everything is back to ugly. Especially the Consolas font in Eclipse looks very bad. How do I force ClearType to stay enabled?

• Yes, I have this on 8.1 right now. – reinierpost Mar 26 at 14:16

• When using terminal mode rdesktop on Linux, you can use -x 0x80 to enable this. – domen Jul 25 '17 at 8:39
