I had to reinstall windows 95 on my system. After I did I had to reinstall the plus disk.  One option I had active befor I reinstalled was the nice option of having the on screen fonts smoothed out. Now after installing I find I can't get this option active.  I've tryed with the Plus Disk Added tab in the Property of the main Disktop and still know smooth effect.  Is there a another way around this like editing the regestry?

Go to:
http://aip.comcentre.nikolaev.ua:8080/archive/pub/os/win95/applets/ and download "w95gray.exe". That it the font smoother.
Run you install/uninstall monitor in case you don't like it.

I downloaded the file and ran it.  It dearced itself, rebooted, and still no smooth fonts.  I still wonder if I'm doing something wroung.  Do you know where the smooth fonts progrom saves it self and under what filename?

Added note to my last message.A couple of days later I was programing in Delphi 2 and needed to cahnge the screen res. I do this so I can make sure that my forms work in both 800X600 and 640X480.  After running the program I notice that Smooth Fonts kicked in.  If any one else has the same problem that I did after I installed the w95gray.exe try changing screen sizes.
