Windows 7: Help! Sticky Notes font changed after updates

Help! Sticky Notes font changed after updates

The font of 'Sticky Notes' of my win 7 pro (32 bit ver) is the pretty handwriting When the OS is freshly installed, but when I finished several updates and installed some drivers, I noticed that the font changed to something looked like tahoma. I don't know what happened.

What confused me more is that, since I didn't exit Stick Notes when I was updating the OS and installing drivers, the font of the 'Old' Notes that already stuck to the desktop kept a handwriting style, but the newly opened notes have a font similar with Tahoma.

I tried Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V and found this could keep the original format of the fonts. So It looks really funny now.

BUT I want the pretty handwriting font back! Any suggestions?

Hello Esoneruza, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Strange. Sticky Notes does not have a option to change the font. Could it be this?

Hope this helps,

Hello Kattaria, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might consider using the free program Stickies for this instead. It has a lot more features with it.

Hope this helps,

Or using the Vista Gadget (fully compatible with 7) called "Large Notes"
(which I personally think is better than Sticky Notes anyway).

Sticky Notes is my favorite yet, stable as can be. I keep it on the desktop and jot notes and love how it expands longer if I have more stuff to do.

I also noticed the type change but like it better than the script myself.

Nobody ever comments that the Gadgets in Windows 7 are totally stable compared to Vista or 3rd party, Rock solid.

Edit: Reinstalling Vista for a friend I notice they have copped the Windows 7 Stikynotes now.

I have the same problem, I added a language to my language bar and made it standard for non-unicode programs to make it visible in all programs, and then all of the sudden the nice handwriting font disappeared out of new sticky notes. I have checked and the segoe font is still installed correctly in both fonts and the register, and I can use it everywhere I want. I know I can "solve" it by copy pasting the font into the sticky note but I would like to know about a real solution! Hope anyone can help me out!
