Kulwant,

When you set a font name/size in a form or report control, VFP uses that font. Where VFP uses the Windows font is in the Menu and I don't really recommend that you play with this. I used to pride myself on my eyesight (note the past tense.) Now, my eyes are not what they used to be. If I set my Windows appearance to a larger font, I want that larger font to be carried through to the VFP menu. Be very careful when you start playing with the user's Windows settings.

I would also recommend against anything smaller than a 10 point font. When you get to be my age, you will understand why :(
