I just started a Visual Basic.Net course at the local Community College. Very little of what I learned while studying VB-6 applies. VB.Net seems to be a little better organized, however. I asked my instructor this question and he said he didn't think it was possible. With all due respect to him, I want to submit it to the gurus on the forum. It is this:

Each object I place on the Main Form has a FONT property. It defauts to "MS Sans Serif" and there is a drop-down list containing a long selection of fonts. All of our exercises want us to use Tahoma. It is a pain to scroll down the drop-down list for every object. How do I change the default to Tahoma? "Help" was no help. Anyone?

Choices have consequences.

Not sure how to change the default but normally when you use a drop down list, if one selection is highlighted you can simply press the key that corresponds to the first letter of the selection, in this case a "T". Continued pressing of the "T' key will cause you to scroll the list of "T" selections. This can also be done in other areas such as Windows Explorer, etc.

Change the font property of the form to Tahoma. Added controls default to the form's font.
