      Sorry Gaylon, I spoke too soon.  XP scaling caused several other programs to open so small that their menus are impossible to read

      Thanks Gaylon,  reducing the font size for all the OS and programs would go to far.
      But the XP scaling fixed the problem.
      Thanks for your prompt reply.
      Sincerely
      Peter

      Peter:

      With certain combinations of monitor resolutions, this can happen.

      Here's what you need to do:

      1) Right-Click anywhere on the desktop of your Windows to bring up a menu.
      2) From the menu, select "Personalize"
      3) Find the option that will allow you to "Adjust Font Size (DPI)"
      4) When you get to the screen that lets you adjust font size, I think you will find that your font is larger than the "normal", which is 96 DPI. You can make adjustments in one of two ways to fix this screen in AQ:
      a) You can adjust your font size down to 96 DPI. This will affect how big things appear on your machine for everything you do. You may like this, and you may not.
      b) You can click the box to "Use Windows XP style DPI scaling". This checkbox might be on the screen you are on, or you might have to click an 'Advanced' or 'Custom' button to find this option.

      If you're using a larger than normal font, by using the "Windows XP" type of scaling, this problem should go away.

      Terry:

      The color options of AQ -- whether the "skins" or your own custom settings -- are only intended for the Pedigree and Family Views. The other views are mostly like a piece of paper -- black text on a white background, sometimes with bits of color that have specific meanings. There are no current plans for customizing colors for these other views. (However, for the Individual Summary view, there are some font color options that are not related to these other color schemes.)

      Hi Gaylon and others,
      all this talk about changing colors and skins made me take a look at my AQ preferences.
      Turns out I have only partially showing preference menus.  The font is probably to big because nowhere do I see any options for changing colors or skins.
      Changing the menu fonts to the smallest size does not help and changing my monitor resolution is not an option.   None of the 4 checkmarks on the Advanced Options make any difference.
      I am running W7 with two monitors a 24" and a 19"
      What would be the solution?
      Txs
      Peter
