Start menu - font control - win 6.5 - update

2 posts in this topic


although i have done it on an OmniaII, yet i guess it is applicable on win6.5 regardless of the ppc.


i searched too much for a cab, or any to control start menu font. change sys font is available, menus but not the start menu.

for no reason i know, the start menu has its own control. i was able to make it 3 or 4 or 5 columns , but not the font

any way manually, go to win folder, locate the following 2 files:



they are the files controlling how u see start menu

then open both or any of them - i modified both- u will get the following


<Form Width="480" Height="800">

<StartMenu_GridScene ID="Scene">

<GridView ID="Start Menu Items List" Top="0" Left="0" Width="480" Height="696" Columns="3" Scrollable="TRUE" HexagonGrid="TRUE" HorizontalWrapAround="TRUE">

<Image ID="Selection" Left="0" Top="-30" Width="192" Height="158" Source=".\StartMenu_Selection.png" />

<Layer ID="GridItem" Width="192" Height="166" OnAction ="GridItemAction">

<Layer ID="Normal">

<Image ID="Image" Left="51" Top="4" Width="90" Height="90" ScaleStyle="Fit" />

<Text ID="Text" Left="18" Top="98" Width="156" Height="68" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="7" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Top" Wrap="True" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" ForeColor="#00FFFFFF" BackColor="#00000000" />



<Layer ID="NoItems">

<Text ID="Text" Width="480" Height="40" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="10" ForeColor="#00FFFFFF" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Trimming="Character" InnerTextType="Resource">shellres.dll,22596</Text>






ok, i know nothing about this details except the red ones

i changed it from 7 to 14 .... for example, so i got what u see in the attached files. the font group can also changed.

i used notepad on my desktop and returned them to my omniaII. every change neeeeeeds restart to take effect.
