Default change default font in Access 2007

My copy of Microsoft Access 2007 defaults to an awful, difficult to read script type font. How can I change the default font?

I know how to change individual tables and the like, but it is annoying to keep doing.

Worse, I cannot find any way to change the font in the query screen. In that awful font I cannot even read the names of the fields I pull down into the query by example setup. I need to change the font in all the MS generated boxes even more than in the tables and the like that I use.

Default Changing fonts in Access Objects

I apologize for the delay in responding.

Go to the Office button in the top left of the screen and press it. Then at the bottom of the pop up click on Access Options. This is not in with the options like Save and Print. It is at the very bottom right next to the close button.

Then you have to root out where the font settings are. There is one under that datasheet group, another in the Object Designer group. But look carefully as I no longer remember if there were any others.
