    Menu & Toolbars in Word (Office XP - SR-1)

    I am a bit puzzled about one thing in Office XP. I hope someone can help me. The Menu Bar (File, Edit, Inster, View, etc.) and all the Toolbars have white letters. The white is very blaring and annoying. Can anyone tell me how I can change the Menu Bar and Toolbars letters to Black?
    Thanks.

    The colour of the text in these is decided by the colour you have selected as '3D Objects' (in Win NT) or 'button face' in some others - it is the text 'OK' on a sample button in the Display Preferences, Appearances window. Sorry I don't know what it's called in XP.

    To go to it, either (1) minimise everything so you can see the desktop, rightclick and choose Properties, or (2) go to Start, Settings, Control Panel and double click Display. Choose the Appearances tab, then click on the OK button in the sample window. At the button the text font and colour will be displayed - change the colour to black.

    One point though, you need to be careful that the rest of the colour scheme is not such that the new text colour will vanish in a dark background elsewhere on the screen; it would be better to choose one of the predefined colour schemes given.

    I went there, all my text in 3D is Black. Yet, all the letters on the Toolbars are still White. Do you think it is a glitche?

    Could be. Try this <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=off&Number=104135>post</A> - it might be something along those lines, although I haven't had to do anything of the sort myself. Yet. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Unfortunately the fonts are not corrupted. It just looks like the office suite is defaulting to white lettering

    Is it just the menus & toolbars in Office, or does it occur in other applications, such as Wordpad, Notepad, etc?

    It was just the menus & toolbars in Office XP, but YAY <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> I figured it out after Andrew gave me some help with the screen shot I sent him. It wasn't actually in the Control Panel and Menu but it was. Whatever theme I selected was defaulting it to white. I just selected a different theme and now everything on the menu and toolbars in Word is back to black. I am soooooooooo happy; the white lettering was driving me crazy. Thanks everyone.
