Windows 7


Lightbulb > How To Change Advanced Appearance settings

This Is Just A Quick Guide On How to change Advanced Appearance Settings Below I Have Shown A Couple Of Examples;


Right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Personalize;

Click on Window Colour;



Click on Advanced Appearance settings;



Select the Item that you want to Modify;
(Not all of these items will have the option to change the font/size/colour)



Example 1
How To Change the Font > Size > Bold > Italic > for Icon's;

1. Click on the drop down menu under Item then select Icon

2. Now use the drop down munu under Size and select your required size.

3. Now select B for Bold to make the text more predominant.

4. Now select I for Italic to change the style.

Ok now you have changed your Font Size and Style for your Desktop & personal folder's.



Example 2
How to change the Active Title Bar > Fonts > Size > Bold;

1. Click on the drop down menu under Item then select Active Title Bar

2. Now use the drop down menu under Size then select your required size.

3. Now select B For Bold to make the text more predominant.

4. Now select I for Italic to change the style click on the Italic Button to highlight as you did above for the Boldness.

5. Now to change the colour there are 2 boxes to choose from here.



Now these are just a couple of examples but there are so many things you can change to re style the way your windows look.

So go on have and have a bit of fun!
