The Visual Studio 2010 Source Control Explorer window displays quite nicely on my Windows 7 box.

The only problem is, it's quite hard for me to see the difference between the bold and regular sub-items and I don't want to filter everything "non-bold".

Is there a way to change the font for this window?

  • To open the window, go to: View -> Other Windows -> Source Control Explorer. It only works properly if Team Foundation Server is your selected source control plug-in. – Der Hochstapler Feb 13 '12 at 18:32
  • @Oliver Salzburg, I can open the window just fine, but don't know how to customize the font used in the window. – Chris O Feb 13 '12 at 20:32

    I just added that for people who might be looking for that window to find a solution. Cause I had a hard time finding it myself, as I use AnkhSVN for source control (and, thus, was unable to help). – Der Hochstapler Feb 13 '12 at 21:37

I have found that if you open the Tools/Options Window -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors Environment Font, controls the generic fonts in Visual Studio Including Source Control Explorer
