    DOesn't work for me. I've changed the .txt to .adm and uploaded it into GPO Manager, but the 'Configure Font Smoothing' option doesn't display - so I cannot set it.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]

    "FontSmoothing"="2"
    "FontSmoothingType"=dword:00000002

    If I leave that running for a couple of weeks I think it will work. I'll get back to you if I hit any probs.

    P.S. Is this the best way of implementing changes to the registry through group policy? If anyone has any better suggestions then let me know.


    OK, suppose the Terminal server got the GPO assigned as the Loop back in the domain, so can this registry hack be implemented in the terminal server directly login as DOMAIN\Administrator ?

    or this is something that needs to be executed by the user each time they logon ? [logon scipt].

    No. It didn't work! I have attached a working copy with all of the original text. The description text is a little messy but its about the functionality and the settings are now available in the classic administrative templates section.
