Windows 7 to Windows XP Font
Change Win7 font to the one used in WinXP

I find the Windows 7 font quite annoying compared to the one XP used.
I looked everywhere, but i cant find a way to switch to the XP font. I come across a site that provides support for microsoft products and they said they asked for $79.99 to do it. lol. That amount amuses me. They use 79 and 99... Could have just said 80$. I hate this annoying way of trying to fool people that its cheap....

Windows XP and Windows 2000 use Tahoma. From Vista they started using Segoe UI.

There are lots of tutorials on the net that tell you how to change the system font of particular Windows operating systems. I usually leave my system fonts alone because changing them can bring up an entirely new set of problems if not done correctly.
