Windows 7: Replace default Windows 7 "Thin Character" Fonts

Jerry, the theme works great for me. For the first time, I can actually use Win 7 in the non-high-contrast mode for everything. No problems to speak of, the install process went easy per your instructions. My sincere thanks once again.

Jerry:

I found one strange thing with this theme. I set up the display appearance settings ao that the setting for window border glass colors (in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance/Enable Trandparency) is disabled (no transparency). Saved the theme.

I then switched to high contrast, then switched back to regular display. The setting for transparency is enabled again. It can be turned off again, but it is annoying to do this. Is this something with the theme? It did not happen before using other themes.

Otherwise looking good....

Hi Pete sorry for the late reply was busy yesterday, I just checked what you said and you are right I get the same thing even with the default Aero theme and I'm not sure why that is happening.

Doing some testing I found that if you click on a another saved Aero theme and then click back to the one I made for you than the unchecked Enable Trandparency is back.

Thanks again

Jerry, I also had another problem, maybe related to this maybe not. All I can say is that, after powering down my PC for the night, when I turned it on in the morning again, it booted up in safe mode with a very low res.

Rather than mess with it further, I reset to a previous Restore Point I made before I started changing things, everything is normal now but back to my old theme etc. I am not gouing to pursue this further right now, I have some other business to attend to for the near future. But if you find some solutions, I will maybe try again in the future.

Thanks for all your help

I can't imagine the theme causing that, when you get the time later try it again and see what happens.
