Yes and Yes
You would use the dropdown menu choose properties

And you would put in Font:Font and it will list all the places on the left side where there is a font then you have to click each one and change it.

Also look at post #8 in this thread there is an easier way if you do not want to purchase Windows Style Builder Dialog box colour?

Lemme first check it personally. If I can't manage to do that on my own, I'll certainly ask for your help, Jerry.

Thanks again and again

Holla back, Jerry!

I'm back with bad news: I've installed Win7 Style Builder and given it a try; however, I couldn't manage to modify the parts I want to as I don't know which item to choose in the list in order to make desired changes



Well, I have two more questions:

Can the shine effect which the open toolbar buttons have on be disabled? Does this effect stem from Aero?



You remember the theme (Aero Lucida) you created at me request. While using Tweak IE9, I encountered a problem about the appearance of dialog box. I'm posting the screen captures about this problem:





I'm a rookie who wants to acquaint himself with this editing stuff and I think there is a lot to learn from you and others like you. Thanks for your patience and great dedication to the issue.

For the shine on the taskbar buttons you will need to go to
Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Basic > TaskBand
and
Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Basic > TaskBand (Vertical)
and edit the images in the locations highlighted in the red. They all open of showing the different states of the buttons.

As you can see from this screenshot the ones highlighted in red show the different states the buttons have the ones highlighted in yellow are for the pinned items on the task bar.

I have never used Tweakie9 so I don't think I can help their sorry.

May the problem about the appearance of dialog box stem from having changed MS Shell Dlg and MS Shell Dlg 2 fonts from system default fonts into Lucida Sans Unicode?

Could you please also post the screen captures of how the fonts of taskbar buttons and search boxes (start menu and explorer window) are modified?

That could possibly do it and the size of the font.

For the taskbar buttons the font and text color is at Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Basic > TaskBand You can click on the color and the font name and a box will open up for you to choose what you want
I need help with following font issues-font.pngI need help with following font issues-font2.pngI need help with following font issues-color.png

The search box font in Windows Explorer is at
Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > ICONTITLEFONT:FONT click on the font name in the box will open up for you to choose. This will change some other fonts to.
I need help with following font issues-3.pngI need help with following font issues-font2.png

The search box text color is at
Address, Breadcrumb & Search > Search > Edit > SearchEdit > TextBox > Normal Text and Accelerator Text.
I need help with following font issues-text.png

The search box font in the start menu I don't think can be change sorry.

If you want to remove the italic text in the search boxes go here
Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Boxes > Edit > Basic > EditText > CueBanner and untick TEXTITALIC:BOOL BOX

Holla back, Jerry!

I'm here again and have new questions:

Question #1: Is it possible to edit all themes using Vista Style Builder? Or can we just modify Aero?

Question #2: I couldn't manage to remove the shine effect on active task bar buttons cos I don't really know what to do when I open the parts you indicated on your previous posts using Vista Style Builder. To be honest, it is really hard for such a rookie as me to capture all these things at once. Could you please do it for me and post the new build of your AeroLucida theme on the first page?

Question #3: I also want to have Lucida Sans Unicode as the font of explorer windows commands which is placed under the explorer address bar. Is it tangible?




PS: I have witnessed many theme creators use Restorator, which you also recommended, and then I have downloaded it. If it is more practical than Vista Style Builder, you may post screenshots of Restorator, too.
