How do you change the default display font in WLW?


  • I want to be clear, I'm not asking how to change the font of text in a blog post. I prefer not to use the "edit using theme" option, but I don't like the way the default display font looks in WLW. I believe it's Trebuchet or something, but it's offputting and I would like to change it.

    I tried to see if there was a way to change my Vista fonts that would also change the WLW fonts, but couldn't find anything.

    Is there a way to change the basic display font that WLW uses when you're editing without using your blog's theme?

    Thanks so much for any help!

  • You can edit the default theme by changing:

    C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Writer\template\default.htm
    C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Writer\template\defaultstyle.css

  • Dear Brandon,

    I arrived here from Google search. I agree with terescia, your answer was extraordinarily helpful and worked like a charm! 

    I just wish all life's problems were that easy to solve :)
