Changing default font to Tahoma (or any other)
Hi everyone, I'm new, so apologies in advance if this doesn't belong in this section or if there's anything else wrong with this post. I've been searching this forum (and others, too) looking for a solution to my problem, but couldn't find one.
I don't like the Windows 7 default font - I think it's Calibri - because it's anti-aliased somehow and appears kind of fuzzy on my screen. (It's basically the same with ClearType turned on or off.) I have changed all fonts I could find how to change in Windows to Tahoma instead, which looks nice and crispy (i.e., not fuzzy). However, Calibri remains in place almost everywhere, including the Start menu, windows titles, and all Explorer windows except the menu bar. I have uploaded a screenshot that shows this: http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/5...sersthdocu.jpg (Two different fonts - the menu bar looks the way I want it to look, the address bar does not.)
Can somebody tell me how/where I can change this so that the same font is used throughout Windows? Thanks a lot in advance.

BTW, the reason why I had so much trouble finding this was that I googled for "Calibri", when, in fact, that blurry default font is called "Segoe UI"...
Anyway, it's outrageous that there seems to be no other way than editing the registry.
