    On Win XP, when you right click on My Computer > Properties > Appearance Tab > Advanced, you can change many things such as Message Box, Select and Normal, Icon spacing and size, Text size for Icons, font and font size, bold or not, etc.

    :rolleyes: Where on Win 7 can I find these properties so I can change them? I found it yesterday by accident and now I can't remember where.

    Am I clear on what I am talking about?

    Thanks!

    Try this:
    Right click on your desktop screen in an empty space.
    Personaliz>Window Colour Custom>Advanced appearance settings...
    You should know your way from there:razz:

    I am just the same as you. :rolleyes:
    Find something, tweak it, and forget where I've been, ha ha.
    I actually have a paper notebook now and write things down.
    If only I could read my writing it would be great :razz:
