The text under my icons changed to script? How do I change it back?

Hey guys:

That pretty much sums it up. I don't know what happened but now it's really annoying to read the icons because their in script. How do I change it back to normal? Actually, everything is now in script, including the start menu and all other sub-menus. Fudge...

Thanks

In the tutorial MilesAhead gave you, Fonts - Change -- to actually change the Desktop Icon fonts, in Step 3 when you click on the "Items" drop-down menu, select "Icon" to change the Desktop Icon fonts. (Icon fonts in other locations may also change as well. You'll have to try it and see exactly which fonts change and which don't.)

Great! I'm so glad that worked for you. Did it change any other icon text as well?

It did. It changed Everything back just the way it was. I wouldn't have figured it out so quickly without your added comment. And that's just one of those things that aggravate the hell out of me and I don't want to spend my time trying to fix.

Thanks for making it easy!!!
