I do not know how this happened but there must be a simple fix. Being the happiest time of the year I allowed someone else to test drive my MacBook (10.6.5). The result: In Finder, the font for all the folders under my user folder are a gaudy disgraceful font. Everything else is normal, default, the documents, pictures and other folders are all normal.

So my question. a.) What is the default font in Finder, and how do I change that back.

Thank you

Update, it just changed back on its, I was hoping it would. I believe PathFinder may have been a culprit even though it is not set to alter Finder. Anyways, problem resolved.
