%UserProfile% I think.  Anyway, on Windows 8 you can put it in

Then there put something like this:

# ugly theme, but font setting below don't seem to work with the
# default non-ugly Windows one
gtk-theme-name = "Raleigh"
# and set the font you want
gtk-font-name = "Sans 14"

How have you installed Geany?  GTK?  On which version of Windows?
I just tried installing Geany 1.25 from the official installer on
Windows 8, and it works just fine, and looks pretty much like native apps.

Or maybe you have a HiDPI screen?  If that's so, I'm afraid GTK 2.x
doesn't cope very well with this, but I think there is another workaround
