What is the default font in Windows 7?

I have a sort of a time trying to figure that out, but I'll try to find a font Windows decent that looks good anywhere like XP, but I don't know what to choose and I don't know what XP used or even which uses Windows 7.

I know how to change things, but knowing the value default for each could help me decide. I try with ClearType on and outside, but I continue to turn in the same text hard to read which is either crushed or seems smeared. It is not the same experience good all over as it was with XP, although I'd rather not have the pixelated look on text.


Segoe UI is the default font in Windows 7. Segoe UI is a humanist typeface family that is best known for its use by Microsoft. Microsoft uses Segoe UI in their marketing materials online and print, including recent logos for a number of products. In addition, the Segoe UI font family is used by many Microsoft applications. This is the default font in Windows Vista and Windows 7. The font is also used for Outlook.com, e-mail service from Microsoft which has replaced the previous Hotmail.

Thank you.

    Try this.

  • How can I change the default font of Sticky Notes?

    I want to change the default font of Sticky Notes in Windows 7. As said in the previous thread, I can copy from other software to get it. Point is that when I restart the application or the operating system that it returns in Segoe Print again. Sometimes it is not displayed as Segoe Print at all (especially mixed with other languages). I searched the Internet, told to remove the police to get the modish, he will risk the stability of the BONE or something? What can I do to set up another police? I've heard it can be changed in Windows Vista, is it true? Is there a patch to add or difficulty that is then? Or which will be added in Windows 8?

    You can solve this problem by editing the registry a little more. It's pretty easy.
    1. go to the registry: start-> run-> regedit
    2. go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
    3 right-click the font that you want to change, and then type the name (the name of the file) of the font you want with the following. (For sticky notes, edit Segoe Print and Segoe Print "BOLD". For example, arialn.ttf and arialnb.ttf for Arial Narrow)
    Reboot your computer, and you should be good to go.

  • How can I change the locations of Windows Update to the default settings of Windows?

    Windows backup does not complete successfully, and I get the message "the system cannot find the specified file (0 x 80070002). Windows error procedures have not found the answer.  Solving the problems of files MS Fixit found that where Windows Update stores data has changed and that it should be repaired by changing places of WU to the default settings of Windows.  Please can someone explain how to do this?

    Hi Derek,.

    Thanks to join Microsoft Community where you will find all necessary information about the Windows operating systems.

    You cannot perform backup and get error the system cannot find the specified file (0 x 80070002).

    The problem may occur if there is some disk errors hard or due to the interruption by third-party programs.

    What fixit have you tried?

    To check if the problem is due to hard drive errors or due to the interruption by third-party programs, I suggest you follow the steps:

    After each step, if the problem persists, go to the other.

    Method 1: Check the hard disk for errors


    See the site:

    Check your hard drive for errors



    Note:  When checking a disk for errors, if bad sectors si des secteurs defectueux sont are found then the system tries to repair sector. All data may be lost. So make a backup of the data.


    Method 2: Clean boot


    When the computer starts to boot, programs non-Microsoft will not be started and would avoid any interruption of their share.

    See the mentioned site:

    How to perform a clean boot for a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8


    Note: once you are done with the boot, follow step 3 of section to set your computer to normal startup.

    Note: If in case, you are connected via a connection wireless, and then when you start the System Configuration utility to perform the clean boot, click Startup and Services tab one time and check wireless see corresponding section are checked (enabled).


    I hope this helps. If the problem persists, or if you have problems of Windows in the future, let us know and we would be happy to help you.

  • In Wordpad - how can I change the default font?

    I hope this is the right category for this question. I'm changing the default font in WordPad.  Using WINDOWS 7. The default font is "calibri", and I want to change in Arial. I can't find anything in the help of Wordpad menu that says you can change the default font. There are instructions to change the default format, spacing, etc. but nothing about how to change the font permanently.

    And I don't mean in a single document that I know how to change temporarily. I want to know if the default font can be changed permanently in WINDOWS 7 WORDPAD.

    I could do in XP so it goes without saying that I should be able to do so under Windows 7

    Does anyone know if this is possible and if so, how?

    Thank you

    Of course, that's just my opinion... I could be wrong!


    You cannot change the default font in Wordpad, but there is a work around.
    a. open Wordpad and the police that you want and then save it as a template and exit Wordpad.
    b. open the file you just saved and read only to avoid accidentally on writing. Create a shortcut to it and use this to launch WordPad in the future.

    It always goes back to the police that you put, but you will need to save it under a new name every time.

    Click on the link below and follow the steps mentioned by Ronnie Vernon and Ptsome110.

    Thanks and regards.

  • How to reset the color scheme to the default level in Windows 7?

    I changed the default color of Windows 7 (32-bit version x) system palette, using the personalize > Windows color > link appearance and the dialog that results.   But she did background colors of controls like buttons, drop-down lists etc. in the dialogs implemented by applications, being identical to the forefront of the font of text on them.  This makes the information unreadable text.   I want to restore the default color palette, so that this information can be read.   I want to know how to reset the color scheme, since other changes in results window customization in unpredictable and unreadable color on other components of the application windows.
    As this resulted in almost total ease of use of my computer, I would be very grateful to anyone who can guide me to reset the color scheme for my computer to its normal state by default as soon as possible.   Thanks in advance.

  • Change the default font for Illy to something else

    Hey gang,

    How do you Illustrator CS5 default font other than Myriad Pro. Say, like maybe Arial? It is the wish of a student in a classroom.

    Best for you,

    Mike Witherell in Alexandria, GOES

    The default font is controlled by the "Normal Character Style. To change this, you must open the character Style Panel (window > Type > character Styles). Double-click the Normal Character Style and you will have a myriad (pun intended) of choice for the police. This will outline the Normal character for the current document Style.

    If you want the police to resort to be different for new documents, you must define the character style for the new profile of the specific Document. On a mac, these files are saved in users / [user] / Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS5.1 [in my case] / profiles of new Document. You can open and change the character styles on any of the pre built of new document profiles or create your own.

    Alternatively, you can set the style of your character and then save the document as a template (ACI), then when you need to create a new document, open this file HAS rather than make a new document.
