Windows 7: MP3 'Details' Font resolution is too light...

MP3 'Details' Font resolution is too light...


So, when I 'View Details' in a folder full of MP3's, the font of the MP3 filename has really clear and dark resolution, but the 'details' (i.e. 'Contributing Artists', 'Year', and 'Album') are in a very very ghostly, faint font that I have trouble seeing. Does anyone know if it is possible to have the various chosen 'Details' appear with the same crisp, dark font resolution as the filename itself?

Not sure what you are talking about. Please if you can give us a screen shot of the problem, and what program you are using.

Also if you could please go into your cp and put in your system specs (they will show up in the "my system specs" so others may be able to help you should you come across other problems you may need help with.

Also, "Welcome to the Seven Forums.". . .

Just went in to Explorer (file manager), and found what you are talking about. This is the way MS set Explorer to work. They may be someone here on the forums that might know a way around this by making registry changes (not always a good idea).

So, I uploaded a screenshot as an attachment (sorry I couldn't figure out how to cut and paste it in the message). As you'll see, the filename is in a much darker font than the ghostly 'Authors' and 'Album Name'...

It seems like there should be some easier way than registry changes--something in 'Display' (which I toyed around with for an hour), but I'm no expert (thus this thread I started).

Details view in Explorer utilizes faint font color for most fields.
If you use the details view in Windows Explorer, you'll note that save for the name field, all other fields are grayed out, likely due to Microsoft finding them "irrelevant" for most users. This is infuriating, as these are things which I refer to regularly, and I find it asinine that I'm expected...
