    It seems that the file aero.msstyles in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero contains all the font settings for Aero themes, excluding registry ones.

    The forum has a few threads containing registry edits to change the font system-wide to Tahoma. If you just want to change the taskbar font, that might not be possible.

    There is a post to do it but it's for windows 7.

    It modifies the file aero.msstyle file and works perfectly, but there is no solution for Windows 10, maybe someone knows what values to change with resource hacker to this file. Registry entries doesn't apply for taskbar.

    Download file Windows Aero (Tahoma Font) Manual Installation.zip - show content of file

    Do you mean for the taskbar buttons? If so yes. What color do you mean?

    I will go ahead and change the font size for the taskbar buttons and I will make the title bar color white and posted back here later. I don't know why when making a custom theme it changes the title bar to blue.

    I just corrupted my Windows 10 install and I will have to reinstall and start over, and will work on this over the weekend and try to get that theme back to you early next week.

    Sorry
