Could you explain more where you need the darker text at, and are you using Windows 7 Aero or Windows 7 basic or Windows classic theme.

If I understand it right
I am using the aero
I want all over everything darker text, strange but it seems worse lately...did windows update do it? I have tried different fonts and ever going larger text, burt all is just grey light text. I have tried to personalize....maybe it is just my own eyes tho.

Go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display. On the left side there is 'Adjust Clear Type text'. Try that.

In addition I recommend to set the DPI to 125% for a smaller screen (e.g. 15") and to 150% for a larger screen (e.g. 22").

If none of that is enough, you can try a high contrast theme in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization

OK using the aero theme I can change that for you, using Windows Style Builder and post it here in a zip folder.
This will be a custom theme and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes

I can make all the font colors black and bold and change the font size. Do you have a font size you would like to try?

Let me know.
