Better. Looks like they spent more than 10 minutes on it this time.

yeah, the fonts seem to be bigger. The color is from your windows system defaults. from your desk top, right click in a blank area, select preferences, then painfully navigate Microsloths crappy setup to change the colors

<rant>I agree! I don't like the new Windows interface look. Reminds me of Windows 3.1. I notice a lot of the newer non-MS programs are sporting it, too. I prefer Win 7 look and feel. I think MS went backwards but I guess you have to design the look for the lowest res screen which is, I think, the Window phone.</rant>

Oh that is sssoooo much better. So much info that needs to be on the screen, the default font is just too big.

Except the 8 point font is just a wee bit small on my high resolution display so changed it to 9.

And changed the font to Arial. Do not like the vertical stretching of Tahoma
