    I work with small images with lots of detail and text
    in "Paint" and need to see each pixel of images and text
    in the browser when I work with them and when I view them
    afterwards. XP has the irritating habit of blurring the
    contrasts which I think is called Anti-Aliasing. (If you
    insert e.g. arial text with font size bigger than 12 in
    Paint XP will blur the edges.) The same thing happens
    in "Windows Image Previewer": When I zoom in pictures I
    sometimes need to see the pixels. Bold or big letters in
    Word are also anti-aliased.

    How do I disable anti-aliasing in XP?

    This sounds very promising! However I'm not very
    familiar here. How do I get to "Display Properties"?
