Some of the Font is hard coded and will not change at all like the black text in the property window, most of the font can be changed using what p5bdkw posted. There may be a couple of areas where a font can be added with Windows Style Builder.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
use the drop down menus to select the item you want and then use the second down menu to find the font you want.
