So, I got the most recent "upgrade" in my windows 8, and somehow, yet again, many of my original settings have been changed -- the pleasures of using windows. One of the most recent changes in settings has been that all my text is typed in bold font . I do not even see how to do a(n) ( internal. i . e ,within the computer) search -- it took me a while to even figure out how to turn the computer off -- for font type in order to change the default font type and internet-wide searches have not produced much . Now, I am not an old fart trying to buy the latest version of the interweb; I had a reasonable handle of windows 7, office and of some other previous versions , but the whole interface has changed (as it seems to do with all "upgrades"), and the default settings seem to change with every "upgrade" from microsoft. I use Passport/Outlook or whatever it is named now, and the bold button letter 'B' will not deselect. I assume this post itself will appear in bold font. Anyway, sorry for the rant. Does anyone know how to switch fonts in windows 8 so that bold is not the default in every application one uses?
