In WindowsXP, you could go into your registry and change the fonts which your system uses for dialog boxes, menu's etc.

I've tried doing this in Vista, but i've had NO luck..

Anyone here know how to do it?

This 'might' help. Not sure if it's what you need though:

Actually ChAiNz, that's EXACTLY what i've been doing..

It just doesn't seem to want to work. :lol:

I'll try restarting instead of just logging off though. :)

you should always restart after applying or tweaking a registry entry

Also, when you make the changes, ensure that you ran regedit 'as administrator' o rwithin an admin account.

The reg is full of fun bits pieces. In the htpc world, the things you can unlock in the registry are quite amazing.

let us know how you go Marius ;)

depends on what you want to do Marius.... However, alot of things (non htpc) that are reg tweakable have been packaged as a user friendly GUI in a FREE proggie called Winbubble (http://unlockforus.blogspot.com/2007/11/winbubbles-features-gap.html) check it out ;)
