Anyone who has ever used a Mac computer will agree that Mac OS or macOS is a beautiful looking operating system. Especially, texts or fonts in Mac OS or macOS look better compared to the Windows operating system. The fonts appear better on Mac devices as the font smoothing capability is better in Mac OS or macOS.
There is a similar feature called Clear Type in recent versions of Windows, including Windows 10 and 8, to make the text on the screen look sharper, cleaner, and easier to read. The problem is that many users are not aware of this feature (turned on by default in Windows 10) and complain about blurry fonts without even trying out this Clear Type feature to change default settings.
Users who regularly switch between Mac and PC like to make Windows 10 fonts look like macOS/Mac OS. If you ever wanted to get macOS or Mac OS like smooth font rendering in Windows 10 as well, you can do so by installing a small utility called MacType.
