Here's the problem. I accidentally switched the theme to Classic (don't ask), and when I switched back, all windows have bold titles.

In the image, the top one is how it should be and the bottom is how it looks here. (I got the top image online)

Any proposals on how to fix this? Does this happen frequently?

Open the start menu and type Glass color. That should give you the Control Panel applet to change the color of the borders. Click Advanced and check that the font isn't** bolded**.

I don't see any 'advanced' button on any of the applets... Can you specify its name? – itdoesntwork Jan 2 '12 at 2:55

  2. At the bottom of the Personalization window, click Window Color.

    Note: This window can also be accessed by launching the Change window colors and metrics shortcut from the Start Menu.
