Windows 7: How do I get back normal fonts?

How do I get back normal fonts?

Hello.

I changed something from registry but I can't remember what exactly. Now I have bold fonts in combo boxes and in appearance window.

What is really annoying is that save and open buttons in file save dialog and in file open dialog are in bold too. Also that combo box in file save and in file open dialogs are in bold.

I have already turned all bolds of from "window Color and Appearance" window, but still font's I described are in bold.

Any ideas what font (marked with red on picture) it could be and how to change it from registry?



Here's my dialogs



Tahnk you!

Hello LoveW7, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you did OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to change your default fonts in the registry, then you can change it back to the defaults as displayed in the screenshot under step 4.

Fonts - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

yeah I did that tut too + file editing :P

I luckyly got my fonts back but now now i change font for save/open dialogs? none of options showen in step 4 work for these dialogs.

Would it be good idea to replace segoe font file with tahoma font file?

You could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before you made these changes to undo them all.
