You can change the size and name of the font used by Program Manager for icon titles. To do so, go to one of the following Registry subkeys:

HKEY_USERS\Default\Control Panel\Desktop HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop



Change the following two values

IconTitleSize IconTitleFaceName



to the size and name (respectively) of the font you want. For example, the default values are:

IconTitleSize : REG_SZ : 9 IconTitleFaceName : REG_SZ : Helv




The value

IconTitleStyle




which can currently be implemented in Windows 3.1 to change the Program Manager font to bold, cannot be used to change the font in Windows NT 3.1. While the value is documented, changing it from the default of "0" to "1" in the Registry does not work. However, in Windows NT 3.5 this entry works as expected.
