hello, is there a SAFE way of changing my system font because i want my OS to look more customised than it already is.

i really don't know what to do since when i look at other forums i find that you have to change the registry and sometimes the computer doesn't like it and i don't want to risk damaging my system.

Right-click an empty area of the desktop.
Select "Properties"
Click the "Appearance" tab
Click "Advanced"
Click the frame inside the box named "Active Window"
Notice the "Fonts" area now shows the name of the font in use. Here you can change it to whatever you like. it's size and color.
Click Ok when done.

OOps... one little mistake is all it takes, it's "Gpedit.msc"

Should have read:

Click:

Start>run>gpedit.msc>User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Desktop>Active Desktop>Prohibit Changes,

(right-click for properties),
Disable

This *is* the path...

Click:

Start>run>gpedit.msc>User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Desktop>Active Desktop>Prohibit Changes,

(right-click for properties),
Disable


If you have Xp Home Edition, there is no gpedit.msc
