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?
Question for visitors: Is this applicable to other Windows versions? If so, please leave a comment or edit the question.– JohnEyeMar 5, 2017 at 17:28
Yes, I have this on 8.1 right now.– reinierpostMar 26, 2019 at 14:16
Solution found. In the Windows remote desktop client, there is an option to enable all sorts of eye candy. In the Remote Desktop Connection dialog, click Show Options, navigate to the Experience tab and select a non-automatic connection speed. Then you can allow the desired visual options.
ClearType equivalent option in remote desktop client is
font smoothing. After enabling that
ClearType setting will always be on in the remote machine.
