ClearType Tuner PowerToy


ClearType Tuner PowerToy uses the ClearType technology, developed by Microsoft, to improve the readability of text on existing LCDs. Today, every desktop or laptop computer uses this type of screen for displaying the content. This new technology allows the words on your PC screen to look almost as sharp and clear as those printed on a piece of paper. ClearType works by accessing the individual vertical color stripe elements in every pixel of an LCD screen. Without this technology, the smallest level of detail that a PC could display was a single pixel. Using ClearType features of a text can be displayed as small as fraction of a pixel in width. This extra resolution increases the sharpness of any tiny details in the text, which makes it easier to read over long periods of time.

You can start setting the program by pressing the Start Wizard button. Then you will be introduced to a secondary screen where a sample text will be displayed in two frames, placed horizontally next to each other. You are asked to choose the one that looks best to you and then click on the Next button. The following screen will have not two, but six frames, similar to the first ones. Again, you have to choose the one that looks best to you and click the Next button again.

Basic Operations

Once you choose your ClearType Tuner PowerToy settings, you will be shown a sample text, written in four different text fonts. Some of the words are formatted in bold and italic styles to demonstrate how the text will look on your screen. You can click on the Back button and go back one or two steps in order to change some of the settings you have previously made. When you are finally satisfied with your selection, you can click Finish to complete the calibration process.


ClearType Tuner PowerToy is definitely a useful tool that can improve the text readability of your monitor screen. It is so simple to use that no one needs instructions or help how to use it. No matter what you think about Microsoft, this program is one of their best products and it is worth trying.
