Open Start-> Type Change Windows Colors and Metrics->Active Title Bar (from the drop down list)...change the font size

I believe this is what you are seeking

Hello Anna, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition to Chris's post above. You can do that in Advanced Appearance settings.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Both solutions couldn't do what I wanted i'll explain it better.

I've got no problem with the "active window font size" I want to change the "outer font white overlay effect" i.e. the white around the font.


Fast replies btw, thats cool!

Oh...I see

Maybe someone in the GFX team could assist you better with that...that is going to require modifing some bitmaps concering the taskbars

any chance of getting a tweaked aero theme with various user requested changes? like - different taskbar buttons colour (ie not white) those are the two biggest things that bug me with the aero theme

does this not bug anyone else? :*(

There's a theme on deviantART: where ART meets application! called Soft7 you may like. You have to replace system files though.

I have the same problem with Windows 7 Aero themes that Annabrand does . Its the taskbar button white text font and the white blur at the top of the taskbar that is hard to read. I dont have this issue on the same PC with Vista Aero. None of the theme modifications that I have seen change the white font and blur issue on the taskbar. The theme mod quoted by torrentg, Soft7 1.6 for Windows 7 by ~AP-GRAPHIK on deviantART is no different. The only solution that I can see at this point is to use a classic theme, which I shouldn't have to do .
