change the font for paths

Q: change the font for paths

How would I set up Windows 8 so that I can edit the `path` environment variable in a fixed pitch font such as `Console` or `Lucida Console`? I don't want to change the font for other parts of Windows - only where paths are displayed. It seems I've been doing this in a terribly inappropriate font for many years and my tired eyes aren't great for semicolons.

A: change the font for paths

Hi Broiyan,
In windows 7 it was so easy by going to control panel, but now is much harder(you`ll see what i mean):
As Far As i know go to regedit>>>>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>>>>SOFTWARE>>>>Microsoft>>>>Windows NT>>>>Current Vision>>>>FontSubstitues>>>> thats all what i know now i need an MVP like brink to hep you with here.

Hey guys,
So I'm wondering If I could get help with getting a font to be used in the system. The font I want to use is this:
(traditional) AR Tianniu B5 - Free Chinese Font - Free Chinese Font

However the font name is in Chinese:
called '最新版心形中文甜妞体智能机专用科'

I'm trying to use this font as a system font on my English Home Premium Windows 7 64-bit.

I've tried changing the fonts the normal way via the 'change window colors and metrice' way in the control panel. However, the font I installed doesn't appear as an option because the font name is in chinese?
I tried to change the font name to English, however it makes the font invalid.
Any help?

My documents are located in D:\Dropbox\MyOwnDocuments

I no longer use Dropbox; so I would like to move them all to D:\MyOwnDocuments

Problem is that I have many portable programs there, and also program files and program data for programs running from my C drive. Not to mention various other shortcuts to documents or folders in D:\Dropbox\MyOwnDocuments

Is there a quick way to check which programs / shortcuts need to be changed? Or (better) is there a way to change these paths automatically?

To initialize new disksIn Disk Management, right-click the disk you want to initialize, and then click Initialize Disk.
In the Initialize Disk dialog box, select the disk(s) to initialize. You can select whether to use the master boot record (MBR) or GUID partition table (GPT) partition style.
Note The disk is initialized as a basic disk.

Additional considerations
New disks appear as Not Initialized. Before you can use a disk, you must first initialize it. If you start Disk Management after adding a disk, the Initialize Disk Wizard appears so you can initialize the disk.

I deleted a few fonts from my font folder the other day and it seems that a few OS fonts were deleted in the process. Usually Ive got a message saying something along the lines of "this is a OS font" or "in use".

Question:

I noticed that my default calculator font is missing and was curious if anyone knows what font the calculator uses. I got a substituted font from the deleted one, but it looks terrible.

If nobody knows the above. Then would anyone happen to know how to change the calculator font?

-----
I went into a font deletion frenzy because I had some non-OS fonts that made my font list bulky and it took a while to scroll to the more used fonts. So I deleted some to combat this. Photoshop loads a lot faster as well due to less fonts(my little takeaway tip from all this).

Thanks for any feedback.

Hi Miro,

In Windows 7, the default theme font for Windows Aero is Segoe UI.

In Windows 8, the default theme font for Windows Metro is Segoe WP.

You can change the font by editing the theme in Windows 7 (right-click on the desktop → personalize).

You can't change the font in Windows 8 as the feature was removed.

I guess this may be a tiny bit off the subject here, but I am attempting this in windows 7.

I have a program file manager tool called 'Directory Opus' that is capable of calling windows external programs and passing them the current directory the file manager is sitting on.

So far so good.

Now I want to call a cygwin (linux/unix emulator for windows) terminal with that file manager.

Checking properties on the cygwin Icon I got the path: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

So it is a path to a command and an argument to that command.

Actually I guess it is 2 arguments to a command since I think '-' in that position means to feed anything on STDIN to the command. At least that would be true in unix shell programming.

So using the Directory opus setup I pass this call:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - <and here add {s}>'

So the call ends up:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - {s}'

That call does just what it is supposed to. It passed the current file absolute address however cygwin terminal does not understand the windows path notation. If I were passing it: C:\subdir\blah\ It would just say 'No such file' Cygwin terminal wants to see /cygdrive/c/subdir/blah Or at least I think that is what is happing.

So to cut to the chase.... I'd like to put a little wrapper to Cygwin terminal in there with the code necessary to convert 'C:\subdir\blah\' to '/cygdrive/c/subdir/blah/'

But, I do not know how ... Read more

I am working between two Word documents. When I copy from 1 document which is in my default font (Book Antiqua) to the other document (also in Book Antiqua) it pastes in Times New Roman and I have to change it back to Book Antiqua. How can I get it to stick with the one font?
 

A:Font change between documents

It sounds like you might not have Book Antiqua on your PC.
Also, if the font is applied to a style, and the style is applied to a paragraph, and you're not copying the paragraph return, it won't hold the style when it's brought over.

Also, if the text is in style "body text" in doc 1, and you bring it over to doc 2 and doc 2 also has a style called body text, then it's gonna take on the style of doc 2...see?

Hope it helps and welcome to TSG!

I need help in totally removing a font from my computer & replacing it with a different font. I've created many documents in MS Word 97, using Univers as my standard font. Recently, when converting these documents to PDF files, I found that Univers gave me undesirable results. Someone told me that Univers is actually a carryover from WordPerfect, & that it's not a TrueType font. They suggested I use Arial instead & I'd be happy with the end product. Since then, I've been using Arial as my standard font, & I actually opened every single file I'd previously used Univers in & replaced all fonts with Arial (or so I thought). Since then, sometimes when I open one of these same files, I'm finding Univers has reappeared in various places throughout my documents. Usually I can do a "Find" to find any stray Univers text & change the font to Arial, but why does it come back when I thought I'd gotten rid of it before? Is there somewhere within Word, or maybe within Windows (I'm using Windows 95) that I can tell it "anywhere you find Univers, change the font to Arial"?

I also posted this question on Allen Wyatt's WordTips list, but no one had an answer for me.

I'd appreciate any & all suggestions.
thanks.

I also have a samsung galaxy tab 2.7 tablet (wifi only) and a brand new Samsung Galaxy s4 smartphone

I have the kindle books i use the most delivered to each of these devices

My S4 nicely changes the book fonts to a pleasing san serif type so i am set there.

I will look into "calibre" to change the default serif font in the Tablet, other than that i will have to root unless someone has some information for me. my eyes are not compatible with Serif for e reading

My primary concern here is the font in KINDLE FOR PC which i use on my computer. I will consider alternate readers only if they can read my KINDLE books either from online, the cloud, or the file on my computer AND BE ABLE TO CHANGE FONT.

I know there is a registry hack to be able to change the Kindle For PC fonts but i lost the bookmark and the site is a pay for site and can't get the information

I would appreciate if anyone could lead me to the specific information i need to CHANGE THE FONT TO A SANS SERIF FONT for all my books on Kindle For PC on my computer - either Windows 8 Kindle For PC or Windows 7 Kindle for PC either will run on my PC i understand

In that window that comes up there are drop down lists to change font size for the following: titles bars, menus, message boxes, palette titles, icons and tool tips. I changed all that to 10. Which for now I think I'm comfortable with of those I readily see so far. However inside that window the text describing things above that is like an 8 or 9 font. I need to be able to change that. Also the font size on web pages in firefox is not the same from before doing the upgrade from windows 8.1 pro. That font is also several numbers lower than before. I'm used to text ranging from 10 to 12 in size. I need to be able to change the font sizes for much more things. I seem to recall in previous versions of windows the font size changing thing had a dozen or more items in the list to change. But I can't find that anywhere. Could someone direct me to where I can adjust font sizes for everything everywhere? Thanks.

I can change a lot of things using the appearances tabs, but I can't change the Desktop Font Size.

The "normal" way to do this that Win7 provides is to change the DPI from 100% to 125, 150 or custom. HOWEVER, doing that causes some programs to not work correctly. For instance Titan Quest, and I've heard in comments on gaming forums that other games sometimes have the same problem. Changing DPI in Win7 causes the cursors to not work properly in many full-screen games and apps. Changing DPI back to 100% requires a reboot, which is a pain.

SO... Is there any way, some registry tweak, perhaps, that will allow me to change the desktop font to a larger size?

Right now, I'm having to resort to switching back and forth from 800x600 screen resolution when I can't read some things. On a widescreen monitor, that's a shameful waste of monitor space. It seems there should be an easier way to do this.

While I do not recommend a novice (not saying that you are as I have no idea, this is just in general) try using the following, it is up to you.

This will allow you to use custom Visual Styles as they are created. There are not many at the moment and some could (or will most likely) break Windows 8 at this time. They are being developed, but it will be a while before we see more Styles for Win8.

var months = new Array(

var date = ((now.getDate()<10) ? "0" : "")+ now.getDate();
function fourdigits(number) {
return (number < 1000) ? number + 1900 : number;}
today = days[now.getDay()] + ", " +
months[now.getMonth()] + " " +
date + ", " +
(fourdigits(now.getYear()));
document.write(today);

It seems very simple and basic, which would be good to learn from.

The first thing I tried was to get it in the middle of the page. It just stays on the left side.

Also, can I change the font and/or color of it?

Not a big deal, just trying to learn about it.

All of a sudden the font size in the display settings decided to revert to small, I had set it to medium when I first installed Windows 7 as I cannot read the small text size at high resolutions.
I have tried to set it back to medium, followed the prompt to log off, even restarted, but it just doesn't want to put the font back up to medium size, it stays small.

Any ideas? This is kind of driving me crazy :P

Are you trying to make just the font size bigger or the windows and everything in general?

for everything in general try this..

Desktop -> Right Click -> Personalize -> Display -> Choose Medium or Large, then you'll be prompted to Log off, so log off and then log back on it should all be a bit bigger depending on which setting you chose.

In outlook 2007 whenever I create a new message, copy text in or insert a signature, when I save the message or send it the font changes from what I chose (i.e., arial 10pt) to Times New Roman 12pt.

If I save the email, edit all the text to the font i want, and then send it, the font changes again.

Additionally, if I use outlook format to change the style the font still changes when I save or send the email.

Further with this, when editing all text looks fine. If I click save, leave message open and look at the copy in draft in the reading pane, the font shows as changed but in the email I am editing, the font is as I chose. I have clicked save again and multiple times but the font in the draft is a different font then how I edited the email.

Any help is appreciated.

Hmm, you can use a trick as i think you can't change the default font in Wpad.

Create a rtf document with a "space", select the space, choose your font and size, save as your-template.rtf.
In properties, tick read only to avoid modifying it, be sur that rtf files open with Wpad.
Change your shortcuts to open Wpad so that they open your-template.rtf and that's it.

I've rarely used IE, pretty much always using Firefox so my question is, is there a way to make the default font larger in IE8 without having to always start over after closing it?

Hello all...this is my first post, I'm a computer novice...so please bear with me.

While using MS Word, I've accidentally hit a combination of keys (possibly CTRL, windows START, ALT and others were involved) and it has reduced the font size to something like a 2 or 3 point when it actually says in the tool bar it's still 12 point. This occurs whenever I open a new MS Word document or go to write a new email using MS Outlook or go to reply or forward an email, it minimises the signature too!!!

Now when I go to open up a previous email or previous Word document, the orginal font size is maintained. So really, it only occurs when writing new documents or email replies. I don't believe it's a zoom issue, because as I type this, the IE page looks normal.

I've tried rebooting my machine, no go, tried various key combinations e.g. Ctrl + Shift + P etc, etc...no joy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

I'm currently running on Windows XP with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6.0.

At some point, my account's font size or style has been changed to a larger size, making some websites difficult to read or to load differently. I would like to change the size back to normal.

I have tried: changing font sizes through the above "view" and "text size" buttons, holding down "CTRL" and using my mouse to scroll through text sizes, changing text accessibility through the interent options, and STILL I'm getting nowhere.

I noticed that these above changes effected most text size, but did NOt effect hyperlink text size.

Let me give an example:
The first attached file is a screenshot, entitled "screenproblem," that shows a website with my problem. The second file is a screenshot, entitled "noproblemscreen," that shows how the website normally loads. I got this screenshot by logging into another account on the SAME computer that obviously does not have this format issue. As you can see, there are many differences in how the two accounts interpret the site-- my account formats the site with no background colors, hyperlinks are enlarged, etc.

How can I fix this? It's very aggrevating and I cannot think of how to do it!

Many thanks.

I'm afraid that's not possible because white/light backgrounds will have black/dark text and the other way around but only if you don't use shadows under text. By using shadows under text, text will always be white.

Hi all,

I used to set the Windows console font from the default to Consolas. I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro x64 on my laptop very recently, and there are very few application programs on it. I'd like to do the same and change the console font to Consolas.

I was going to follow what I did before (which I found on the Internet) by adding a registry entry to the location




Quote:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont


with value name "00" and value data "Consolas". But I went to that registry location only to find out the registry (with name and data exactly as above) was already there. Also, there was another entry for Lucida Console with value name "0" and value data "Lucida Console"

So I simply opened up cmd.exe and checked the Properties/Font section, neither of the above two fonts showed up as a font option. More strangely, even if I change the font size there, after I restart cmd.exe, the font size goes back to the default.

Is there any other place where I need to add a registry entry or modify any settings? Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks very much for any help.

Hello! A long time problem I have had in Word 2003 is sometimes when I use the backspace key, the text immediately in front of the cursor changes to a different font. Usually three or four words change, and it always changes to the font "page number + italic". This has happened in hundreds of documents - some I have created, some have been sent to me by others. It does not always happen, and it can happen intermittently within the same document.

I have tried and tried to fugure out what on earth is causing this. Any help would be VERY much appreciated! Thanks.

hi Smedley,

Looks like that when you are backspacing you are removing the paragraph format marks.

The text format is specified in these hidden marks at the end of each text format block.

Click on the symbol in the tool bar to show these and you will be able to see if that is the case.

Click again to return to them not being displayed.

After normal shutdown on my small office network last Friday, my server (which is also MY workstation) began my week by displaying previously normal screen fonts in italics on Monday morning. Although entries display in italics, they print with normal fonts. At first I thought it was the particular office program I use, but I notice a similar aberration when I opened Google. It doesn't effect bold and title fonts, just the normal fonts that would be used when typing in entries. It also does not effect the screen fonts on Word, Notepad, or OE. The server is the only station affected and it runs on XP Pro, while the other workstations are on 98SE. The phenomenon does not transfer when I take a backup of my office program home to another XP Pro computer. Is there some place I can change the "system fonts" so to speak. I tried changing Views,Encoding in IE, but that has no effect.
