    When in newsgroups, and you click on the "newsgroups" icon to get a list of
    the groups available, is there any way possible to change the font size in
    the box?
    I can change everything else but this item.
    I would prefer slightly larger and darker font for easier reading.

    thanks if you can help.

    please. I already done checked out the desktop properties thing.

    This is a system-wide setting, that needs to be
    changed from Control Panel / Display / Appearance.

    I would suggest you try it out before mouthing off.
    None of the settings in "appearance" have any effect.
    I think this may be a fixed setting in the software itself.

    I suggest you FOAD.

    This has nothing to do with the software. It is a
    system setting, as I said. If it can't be changed in
    the control panel applet, it is a default system font
    (system-wide setting); get it?

    No it does not. I have tried all the font settings and they have no effect
    on the newsgroups listings. AS I SAID, this may be in the software in a dll.

    Mike was telling you that NOT ALL system fonts are changeable - from the
    display settings, or from anywhere.

    I don't give a flying fig what you have and haven't
    tried, Bullis. Default system fonts are used in
    dialog boxes in which there is no option to change
    the font, software-wise; Microsoft would NOT place
    a separate, or particular font INSIDE of a link library,
    just for Outlook Express, you moron.

    Do you even have a clue what a .dll is?
