    I am not a computer wiz, so I hate to ask, but every time I go changing ( adding or deleting ) fonts, my Yahoo page comes up with everything in a new font. Usually it picks something I can barely read.....
    How can I change this to a font I want when I want to ?
    Thanx for any help...

    Fred, you tried to help me with this before. You said Veranda is the default font used. I made sure that font os there and now there is another font though. It seems to change randomly whenever I change something in my font nav.

    The font family is Verdana and includes regular, bold, italic and bold italic. That's four different fonts.

    But that is only four of a number more that are supplied with Windows and should not be deleted. Here is a list:

    • Arial
    • Book Antiqua
    • Comic Sans
    • Courier (10, 12, 15 VGA Res)
    • Courier new
    • Fixed Sys
    • Georgia
    • Impact
    • Microsoft Sans Serif
    • MS Sans (VGA Res)
    • MS Serif (VGA Res)
    • Small Fonts (VGA Res)
    • Symbol
    • Symbol (VGA Res)
    • System
    • Tahoma
    • Times new Roman
    • Trebuchet MS

    However, the way web pages work, fonts are usually set to be in a particular font that is expected to be on your machine but with other names as second and third choices.
