I use a resource hacker(Restorator 2007)opened up the StikyNot.exe.mui from C:\Windows\System32\en-US extracted 3080.xml then open it with Notepad ++ Highlighted Segoe Print went to Search then Replace and then put in the font click on Replace All you get a window telling you how many times it replaced it I get 70 then save it put the 3080.xml back in StikyNot.exe.mui then save that then go to the system32 take ownership give yourself permission can rename and replace the StikyNot.exe.mui with the one I just did.

Thanks Jerry, but where can I find 3080.xml. I looked at StickyNot.exe in Restorator.

Inside MUI, I only see "1".

This may also work.

W7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

I do the modification on my W7 x86 and it works well.
Now i tried to do the same on W7 Ultimate 64bit and there is a complete different situation.

The File "StikyNot.exe.mui" is not located in WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\en-US\ (for me de-DE, because Im on German W7)

In W7 it is only located in
c:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-stickynotes.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_de-de_ad8e988c6b87813d\StikyNot.exe.mui

I do the same Font Type replacement but in Notes I see still "Segoe Print" as Font.
Is there any solution for 64bit?

Welcome to the Seven Forums
I have changed it in 64 bit, but I had en-US folder.
You will need to look for the StikyNot.exe.mui in C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\your language folder, but do not use the 1 in c:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-stickynotes.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_de-de_ad8e988c6b87813d\StikyNot.exe.mui
Search your system32 folder.

I am sorry then I do not know how to do it in German Windows 7.
You could try the 1 in c:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-stickynotes.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_de-de_ad8e988c6b87813d\StikyNot.exe.mui and see what happens.

Hi Bongo and thanks for your fast response

I tried but it failed so Segeo Print is still standard.
In this minute I find a pretty nice and free solution include management of notes.

Works fine and it is easy to change fonts etc.
