Text is Blurry in Microsoft Office

Help! When I'm using a Microsoft Office program, the text is blurry. What's wrong?

Believe it or not, this is a 'feature' in Office. It's called soft text.

If you want to turn this off, perform the following:

  1. Within Microsoft Word, go to File -> Options.
  2. Within that window ,select Advanced and then scroll down to 'Display.'
  3. Scroll to the bottom of that section and uncheck the option for 'Use subpixel positioning to smooth fonts on screen.'
