    Please could anyone confirm my contention/guess that the default fonts in Windows 7 are:
    • Calibri in those instances where Arial previously used to be the default
    • Segoe UI in those instances (menus, etc) where Tahoma and Microsoft Sans Serif used to be the default
    Thanks!

    Does this MSDN article help - Fonts?

    Yes, pretty good - thanks, Joe! Looks like Calibri sneaks in without much mention, though!

    Where are you seeing this "Calibri" being used?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    It is listed in the last two entries of the chart contained in the MSDN article (Document text, Document headings).
