customising Windows 7 font size and appearance

Likes # 0

I was able to customise the appearance of Windows XP and Vista and save the themes. There does not appear to be such an option [so that I wan work on dark backgrounds and enlarge the size and appearance of fonts in toolboxes &c. Can this be done in Windows 7 ?

I have checked through the Themes tabs &c in Word 7 bbut can't find an option to allow me to browse to my saved settings and install them in Windows 7.

Sorry - I meant Windows 7 - not Word 7:

Try - Control Panel - Personalization - Change windows glass colors and then click on advanced settings.

Advanced appearance settings - missed the word appearance!

This is a partial answer, and welcome. However I will have to enter all of the settings manually. Is there no option that will allow me to browse and select a previously saved theme?

Have a look here and use the drop down menu where 'desktop' shows to see where you can change the fonts.

You could browse here I suppose but I doubt you'll find something to your personal needs.

Do you already have a theme? How did you create it?

If you have a theme then paste it in C:\Users{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes and it will show up under my themes.

I have created themes using windows and the utility in the Advanced appearance settings. If I were able to access the Themes folder in Windows Explorer I could paste it in.

Can someone tell me how to

a) display the folders not shown in Explorer b) access this folder in which themes are stored

Thanks

AppData doesn't show up as a folder
