In explorer in Build 3718 of Longhorn, is there anyway to get explorer and the text for items on the sidebar to use the Segoe UI font? I mean things such as the ''No item selected'' text and ''Windows My Pictures'' etc...
Also I mean the text in the left hand colum that lets you search for things.

Finally, is it possible to get rid of the [Placeholder] text for when you select something and it shows a preview thumbnail?

Thanks! :)

Try to edit some values here:

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes

Can you show me what do you refer to by [placeholder] exactly?

Somebody at JoeJoe told me that nobody has yet found a way to change any of what I am talking about.

Get a resource editor and start searching through files for "(placeholder)". You might also search the registry. Make sure you do case-sensitive searches, that might speed it up a little.

I tried looking through shell32.dll and shell32.dll.mui. Nothing found. I might check the registry though.

As of yet, no-one has figured out how to change that area. I've looked myself in all the places you'd normally look with no success.

I would guess that the string is inside BrowseUI.DLL, or any PE linked to it.

Yeh, its a shame the pictures don't rotate and become the picture of the item you have selected like in the Longhorn concept video on Youtube! I will keep on looking through all common resource files and report back if I find anyhting related to the preview pane. By the way, I wonder if the file in question is in WINDOWS\WinSXS? I have noticed that is where all the less common files are placed.

Is what Longhorn X64? The picture I showed you? No, that is just regular Build 3718 it think. I was just thinking, I once read somewhere that in one of the unleaked Longhorn builds, the sticky notes program was hidden in WINDOWS\WinSXS. That is why I was thinking that the resource file for the Welcome pane was hidden within the WinSXS folder. By the way, what does ''WinSXS'' stand for?

Windows Side by Side iirc.

A bit of research can go a long way.
