Changing Fonts

To change the size, color, and font of the screen text:

  1. Choose Settings, Control Panel from the Start menu and then double-click Display, or right-click the desktop and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.

  2. Select the Appearance tab (see Figure 20.5).

    Figure 20.5. You must select a text-related item for the font choices to be available. Here, we select Message Box in the Item drop-down menu.

  3. From the Item drop-down list, select the item for which you want to adjust the text, such as Active Title Bar, Icon, Inactive Title Bar, Menu, Message Box, Palette Title, Selected Items, or ToolTip. Unless you pick one of these items, the font choices will not be available.

  4. Select the font you want to use from the Font drop-down list, the point size from the Size drop-down list, and the color of the text from the Color list (color is not available for all items). Click the B button for boldface and the I button for italic.

  5. Click Apply to see how the desktop will look.

  6. Click OK to accept your choice and close the dialog box.
