    Over the past two weeks I have noticed that some of my
    documents and briefcase files are blue font and some are
    black font. I have not changed any fonts. Any reason
    for this and how I may change them back to black font.

  2. Hi

    A blue font usually indicates compressed files...

    To show all files in black if you really want to: Tools, Folder Options,
    View, uncheck "Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color"

    Go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices, check "Place volume icon in the
    taskbar". That should do it.
