Need to configure
The advanced appearance settings of Windows facilitate you to configure the appearance as per your choice. Depending on your comfort of visibility, you can change the font and color. Sometimes on formatting your system, the font becomes very small which makes you difficult in reading the content. In such cases, you need to increase the font or configure the advanced appearance settings as per your convenience.
Configuring the settings
To configure the advanced appearance settings, initially you need to right-click on desktop and select the ‘Properties’ option. In the corresponding window that opens, click on the 'Appearance' tab. In this window, you need to click on the 'Advanced' option as a result an 'Advanced Appearance' window will be opened. Select the Window item in which you want to apply changes. You can configure the color of display, change font, and its size, and can configure them to bold or italics or both. Next, you need to click on ‘Ok’ option of ‘Advanced Appearance’ window and then click ‘Apply’ option of the ‘Appearance’ window. As a result, the configuration that you have set will be applied.
Important points that you need to keep in mind while configuring advanced appearance settings is that after you click ‘Ok’ in 'Advanced Appearance' tab, you must click on the ‘Apply’ option of ‘Appearance’ tab or else the configuration that you set may not be applied. The configuration that you set is not permanent; it will change when you format your system. So you can configure your settings again through the 'Advanced appearance settings' option.
