I'm new to windows 7 - which I don't like. Also don't like new laptop but I'm stuck with it till I can save for something else. I wanted to change the default font on the desktop. And after looking around found that you can change the font type by going to personalize, colors, advance. You can't change the desktop font but you can change it for different areas such as the start menu and desktop icons. So I changed the font style to Arial Black for both. But I don't like it. It's too large. But now I cannot seem to restore it back to it's original settings.

Can someone tell me how to restore the settings back to default? There's no default setting listed.

Thank you,

Ziva

What happens when you try to set the font back to Segoe UI?

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

Nothing happens. It stays on Arial black.

This is what I see in my personalization box. What did you click on to change your start menu font?

I clicked on Icons and changed the font to Arial. Then clicked OK. Then I clicked on Menu and changed the font the same way. Now it will not change to any other font choice. I was looking for something bolder to make the desktop either to read. For some reason a widescreen desktop, even after changing the screen resolution and display side to medium is too hard to read. Or maybe I need new glasses. Either way it makes learning Windows 7 very frustrating.

Thank you for your help.

Make sure you click the Unsaved Theme, and then click on the Window Color box on the bottom. Let me know how that goes.

Yes. That worked. Just clicking on the unsaved theme changed it back to the default font. Phew what a relief.

Thank you so much for your help and your time.
