    Change Fonts in Win 7 Windows Explorer

    The default font in Windows Explorer is Segoe UI 9. I write training manuals for a non-profit Seniors (50+) group and the captured screen images from Windows Explorer are extremely difficult to see for some of our students. Our printing process captures the screen images for figures. The images are pasted into Word 2007 or Word 2010. The manuals are printed on an networked HP laser printer and reproduced using a copy machine. Since we have no budget ( we are really nonprofit), alternative methods are not available. The Segoe UI font uses a very narrow line size in the font. I need to use a font with a wider line size in the typeface.
    Thanks

    When they are pasted into Word, can't you then change the font before printing them?

    Editing font in pasted in picture

    Ted,
    The manual figures are screen shots (pictures) so that the students will know what they should be seeing on their screens. I do not know how I would edit a typeface (font) that is in a picture captured from the Windows Explorer screen shot.

    EDIT: After testing, I'm not convinced that my suggestion to use Ease of Access Center, Make text 125%/150% actually affects screen shot printouts; it seems to increase size only on screen, but not when captured.
