    system fonts

    Does anyone know how to change the size of the system fonts in the registry of Windows 2000? I installed a desk top theme that changed the system fonts and after un-installing the theme my system fonts are defaulted to a small font. I have tried to change using the settings in the display properties but it does not change the system font size in IE or Outlook .

    What service pack are you on? The QB article is dated February and states it should be fixed 'with the next service pack'. SP2 came out in May (I think). I may be worth installing/re-installing it.

    I installed SP 2 and still cannot change the system fonts for IE and OUTLOOK folders. I believe the culprit may be in the registry key for system fonts.
    Thanks for the advise as I needed to update to SP2 anyway
