This tip worked great to change my font to Verdana, but I am only able to change some font sizes (through Window Color and Appearance). I was able to get mostly every thing I want to be font size 7, but some things still stick at the default.

The taskbar clock (even though I have it set to use small icons) and some menus and dialogs are showing up in a larger font.

Here are some screen shots:

The fonts in green are perfect, Verdana size 7. The fonts in yellow are also Verdana, but a much larger font.


Here is the clock showing the date, which it shouldn't in "Use Small Icons" mode.


I had Win7 Ultimate 32bit before this (installed 64bit to make use of more RAM and Photoshop CS5 enhancements) and I had no issues with these strange font size problems.

Any ideas?

Hello LiquidKernal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately, the size you set for the taskbar icons have no affect on the font size on the taskbar. You'll need to go back through the changes you made in font sizes through Window Color and Appearance to adjust the one for the taskbar back. You can look under step 8 at this link below for the default Advanced Appearance settings to help determine what you have changed.

Window Color and Appearance - Change

Hope this helps,

Shawn,

Thanks for the reply and the welcome. Unfortunately I have already tried setting every option under Window Color and Appearance to font size 7 and there is no option of changing the font size for items on the task bar.

I've read that the only way you can change font sizes on the taskbar is to edit the .msstyles theme. Hoping that's not the only solution

Other than trying a different font that is smaller by default, I do not know of any other way either.

Got it working by undoing the registry changes and just setting the font type and size from Window Color and Appearance.

By using this method in notepad:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"=""
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Segoe UI"="Tahoma"
How do I choose for example Tahoma bold?
And is there a way to change all the font sizes to make it more readable if I choose a font that is small by default? (i.e. terminal).

Hello Edmon,

You would use this for the Tahoma Bold font.


Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"=""
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Segoe UI"="tahomabd"

Lol.. OK.. Since you wouldn't put "Regular" just wondering if you would put bold or some other value.

Is there a way to change all font sizes within this reg file? Orr is the only way to do it one by one through the Appearance settings?
