    You can change the size, font, colors etc through the properties of the buttons.

    The buttons will also look different depending on the theme of the OS that runs them , ie buttons look different on XP vs Vista.

    If you are wanting to change the size and shape etc then there are tutorials around, here is one for a simple round button
