    I just got a new HP laptop today and it has vista on it.

    Can someone tell me where to change the font to a larger font so I don't have to do it each time I type?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I am avoiding replacing my laptop just because I don't like the idea of having to adjust to Vista. Give me good old Windows XP. As for setting fonts and sizes, have you checked under 'Tools', 'Options', then default settings? Mind you, this might be the blind leading the blind, as I am no computer expert.

    Not sure, try doing a search on google, or what search engine you have. Just to let you know, this should go in the general chit chat, it isn't about quilt ;)

    Are you talking about e-mail? Go to Outlook, then tools, then options
    On the Mail format tab in the middle of the box, you can set your default fonts (and colors and sizes) for reaging and creating e-mail. You can also choose stationery if you want. Just realize that some people's spam filters will catch your pretty background and flag it as potentially hazardous.

    Here is how to change windows fonts in Change Windows fonts in Vista Home, lovingly known to its users as ^&&*((@^^$^ piece of @^$^^%


    You can change the font in any part of Windows (for example, menus). Changing a Windows font does not change your program fonts.

    Click to open Appearance Settings.

    Click Advanced.

    In the Item list, click the part of Windows where you want to change the font. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list.

    In the Font list, click the font you want to use.

    In the Size list, click the font size that you want.

    In the Color list, click the font color you want.

    Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each part of Windows where you want to change the font, its size, and its color, and then click OK.

    I have Vista, and I have lots of trouble with my email program. Upgrades wipe it out and I have to get tech help to get things back and then it will only work sporadically for a bit and then is fine. I am on dial up at home, and I accept the slowness, but when it does not work at all, I get more than a little irked! :?
