    Is there a way to make the text in the Start menu bold?

    Specifically the list of programs recently used.

    you can do it by right-clicking the desktop, select:
    poperties > appearance tab > advanced
    in the "item:" dropdown box, select "menu", then click the bold button over on the right

    drawback: it makes everything (all menu text) bold

    play around with those settings, may be a way to get more specific results

    -edit- this is assuming Win XP is your OS

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    I thought that would have done it too, but it only emboldens the upper window munus, not the Start menu.

    It worked for me....

    Although, I have everything in classic style, dunno what it does in XP default styling.
    Theme managers (StyleXP, Windowblinds, etc) can change menu fonts.
    I have applied themes in the past that did, anyway.
    Never tried doing a custom job, though. Just took what the theme gave me.

    You can try ResHacker or ResEdit, and goof around with a few things.
    But you might need the uxtheme.dll patch to benefit from it though, not sure.

    Shirley there's some theming gurus around here somewhere....
