    Where is the "Visual Effects" menu?


    I run a program that requires the setting "Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts" to be un-checked in Win7 and XP. Using Win7, that selection is under Control Panel/System Security/System/Advanced System Settings/Performance Settings/Visual Effects. How do I access that setting in Windows 8?
