Hi, in WinXP (and others) it's possible to customize Font, Size, Color etc.
for all standard windows-items, like window-captions, buttons,
application-background, etc. Now, how can I get back the defaults for all
these settings? Delete a registry somewhere maybe, or is there a more user
(customer, actually) friendly way to do this?

Did you try changing to a different theme?
