Default Font Size & Type Using Aero - Change?


Would anyone please be able to tell me what the default font type and size is used by Windows 7 with Aero activated and if it is possible to change this?

I have been hunting round the control panels menus but cannot locate these settings. I can find how to scale them re dpi etc but cannot locate the size and type settings.
