JSI Tip 5835. How do I enable ClearType on the Windows XP logon screen?

In tip 4537, I described using ClearType to sharpen your Windows XP display.

To implement ClearType on the Windows XP logon screen:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a CTLogon.reg file:


\[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\]

2. Merge the CTLogon.reg file with your registry or run regedit /s CTLogon.reg.

3. Restart Windows XP.
