Moderator deleted my answer here: How to disable ClearType in Visual Studio 2010?
presumably because I duplicated my answer on the duplicate question here: Why does Consolas in Visual Studio look bold?
Actually my answer is more suited to the first question, if you read it, and I find moderator's actions annoying. I duplicated the answer so that the correct answer could be found, as that question (of how to disable ClearType in VS 2010) is a particularly nasty one, and often asked (hence the number of duplicates)
If the duplicate question isn't yet merged, then my duplicate answer (which is the only correct one) should stand.
