Blocky, hard to read icons on Windows Server

    Hi Matt,
    the reason is simple - the antialiasing is disabled. How are you working on the server? Physically connected Display+KB+Mouse or via RDP?

    Hi SelfMan

    Thanks for your response. I don't believe antialiasing (ClearType) is disabled, as all the font looks anti-aliased, it's only the icons. I'm connecting via VNC, but I get the same with RDP.

    ClearType and smooth edges are both enabled on the server (same results setting adjust for best appearance).

    Hi!
    well, other reasons can be the number of displayed colors. When I am looking at the screenshots I can see the different sizes of the icons. Even when I compare it to mine, all of them are larger. The icon size is chosen by the application. I don't know the logic used.
