About this issue, I'd like to have the tutorial on how change all fonts in Win7 by 3rd applications (for 3rd visual style/theme not official Aero one) in the way Bongo did. Can anyone provide a guide/tutorial/link? Thanks. (I've method to get it work correctly in default Aero theme but not yet with 3rd ones)
I did attempt to search but only found this topic and www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1175-fonts-change-16.html but not change all the fonts still leave some behind.

I tried a Msstyle editor and change all fonts in Fonts section to Tahoma 8pt but applying theme still leaving another fonts in other parts of windows UI. Especially in this windows Control Panel\System and Security\System
Screenshot below is what I tried with font changing feature.

You will need to change more fonts than just the one you did, look at the screenshots below, in the first one in the search area make sure it is on Properties and then type in Font than on the left side you will need to click on each item and change the font there.

@Bongo: I had some spare time to did just what you suggested and changed all fonts in search result. But only problem is there's too many manual repeat (I didn't really count) but at least 50-60 repeat for font changing task. Is there any faster way than this? Or this's the fastest way to do this font setting task.

Resource Hacker for font changing.

OK, so this's the solution for someone like me (I post this in order to help any other one in future who might search for this fonts problem and solution, I'm aware of Ave style editor is so powerful and great for creating/modifying visual style). Resource hacker or similar tool can do this font editing/changing task much faster and easier (if what you want is just change all fonts to your favorite one). I also see myself spending much less time in modifying/editing numerous tedious properties field to accomplish little thing in visual style (beside font/size I also want to use antialiased mode rather than Cleartype mode, just my preference, but with regular msstyle editor the task takes so much time). Thanks to those free tools.

Open msstyle with RH, Ctrl+F to find by fontname or anti-aliasing mode, but they usually place in string table. Editing can be done by copy+paste (could use external text edit for search replace to some extend) much faster than manually clicking and editing UI in Ave style editor. Only one thing I haven't figured it out yet, that's I can export string table to *.rc file and open with external editor for further editing but can't find a way to import *.rc file back into RH (I replace graphic images and icons with RH hacker before without problems, but replace *.rc file seems need a bit more trick that I'm not aware of. If anyone know, pls tell me, thanks). Even without this import function, it's still much faster than the old way 'coz you can treat it as raw text data not values of input field.
