Help Me Change SMS Font, Color, Size, Etc.

Can anybody help me with what registry values I need to change in order to adjust the font size and color on the standard windows screen?

The letters are too big and the bright green and blue are kind of annoying.

Anybody know?

Ok... I found out how to edit font size...

Go to any email that you have downloaded on your phone -> menu -> view -> text size.

There you will have a few choices from smallest to biggest.

NICE! I've never been able to figure that one out.

It only changes the text size in the reading pane though, the typing portion is still using the "you must be blind" font setting. Post back if you find a way to change that. I'll do the same if I find out first.

Re: Help Me Change SMS Font, Color, Size, Etc.

I'm needing some help with this. I can't find the "view" selection. SOmehow the text in the reading pane of my SMS got very small.
I like to have it big so I can read it.
Any help please. A registry edit perhaps ? I'm not able to find the solution posted by the OP.

To change the typing section text size from the "you must be blind mode"
Go to Settings, Screen, then text size at the bottom and change the size on the slider.

For the typing size go to Settings> Personal> Input > Options. Just change zoom level
