    Sorry to ask as an experienced member but I upgraded my hard drive and lost my settings.
    How do I change my reply font from Times New Roman (or is it courier) to Arial or other choice?
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Go to the User Control Panel and then Edit Profile and at the bottom of the list type in the font face you want to use and the font size.

    Parker,

    I did that (changed to Arial), but it only changes the reply when it gets posted, not now when I am typing in response. I had somehow changed this before.

    Does Arial font not register for the typing input?

    If you're looking to change the font face of the text you're typing- this would be a function of the default font you're using in windows, rather than a HTF setting.

    You might be able to change it in your browser settings somewhere- but more likely you had previously monkeyed around with the settings for the display (right click on your desktop, select properties, then click the appearance tab).

    If you pick some of the settings (like MESSAGE BOX)- you can change the display font on your system for that type of item.

    Yep. That has to be set in your browser.
