Windows 7: How do I turn off font smoothing of office 2010

How do I turn off font smoothing of office 2010

I had bad surprise when I saw that MSO 2010 is smooth even under win XP.

Any way to turn I off?

I found few tutorials but none of these helped sofar.

I want to turn off smoothing in 2 places: 1) menus and ribbons 2) in that text area where you type.


Edit: what's worked on win 7 (uncheck smooth edges of screen fonts) doesn't on win xp.

nope.

I figured that in windows xp it always uses smooth font. (used compatibility mode to test that theory). So it would need some code editing for which I don't have enough knowledges.

^ Nor do you have the source code that you can manipulate and recompile.
