    I have a little problem that's really bugging me, and I can't find out how to fix it.

    My formatting for the little tooltip type balloons in XP has become all big and ugly and bold.. Does anyone know how to get them back to using the dainty little font they normally use? Any help would be much appreciated - this is really doing my head in!

    Here's a pic of how they look just now:

    Have you looked in right click on empty place on the desktop choose properties
    then Appearance and font size

    Yup, and changing the visual style makes no difference either :(

    Thanks; this worked great!
    What's weird though is that I had already tried this last night, and it didn't work.
    Anyway, thanks for suggesting it to make me try it again!
