Windows 7: How to Change the Font in the Windows 7 Menu

Working with Windows 7 is fun and easy. Windows 7 lets you customize your settings so that you can work in an environment that best suits your needs. I have discussed a number of ways in which you can customize Windows 7, for instance, how to get the best display on your monitor, and how to change the size of text that appears on your screen. In this post, you will learn how to change the font in the Windows 7 menu. You can use this same procedure to change the font of a number of other Windows components as well such as the title bar, message boxes and more by selecting the item you want from the Item list. So, lets get started.

How to Change the Font in the Windows 7 Menu

1. Navigate to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance.

2. In the Window Color and Appearance window, click the Advanced appearance settings link.

      Ooh thanks for this tip! I always try to change and customize my PC background every week, and I’ll definitely add this to my routine. Can I enlarge or resize the font as well?
