being the font whore that i am, i have about 1000 fonts to install on my computer. many were already installed and i was having to hit the "ok" button to overwrite the old files. i dragged all the files out of the c:\windoww\fonts folder to there would be a "master" font folder to install

i set the font to arial (which i thought would be safe) i need to reset the deafault font of tahoma, but have NO idea on how to do it. google searches haven't helped.

i've got a free 30 day pass for my candydreams.com site for the first person whom helps me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm not sure if there's a sweeping change option but here's a run through to change the default windows fonts:

Click Start > Control Panel
If in classic mode, double-click Display
If in category mode, click Apperance & Themes, then click Display
In the Display Properties window, click the Apperance Tab
Then click the Advanced button
In the Advanced Apperance window, you'll have a drop down list for different items
The following ones have fonts:
Active Title Bar
Icon
Inactive Title Bar
Menu
Message Box
Palette Title
Selected Items
Tooltip
Most commonly, Message Box is the one that gets changed by something, so it might just be that one that you're looking for.

I hope that helps!

Matthew

Boot in safe mode (probably not 100% necessary, but just in case the file is locked), and if you're asked, use the Administrator account .

Go to:

c:\documents and settings\*profilename*\application data\windows\themes

replace *profilename* with the name of the directory that applies. For example, when you first set up the PC and added yourself to the system, you may have used "johnny". Go into that directory.

You'll probably find a file in there called Custom.theme. DON'T DELETE, just move the file out of the directory.

Reboot in normal mode, and your theme should revert back to the defaults.

...notice I said *SHOULD*. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Where do you want to make the default font change? In word processing applications or somewhere else?
