system font

As the Windows 10 default font is very boring, you can change it to any different font you like. Previously it was very to change the font in Windows 7 but as with the Windows 10 release, Microsoft removed that option from the Personalization tab. There is a very simple way to change the font. To do so, follow these step-by-step guide.

Steps to change system font

– First, you need to click on the start menu and open Notepad.

-Then copy and paste the below code into the notepad

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]

“Segoe UI (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Light (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)”=””
“Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)”=””

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

“Segoe UI”=”Your New Font”

– Now replace the font name you like to set with the “Your New Font” in code.

– Then click on File > Save As > give the file any name with “.reg” at the end. (You have to select All files in Save As Type menu)

As the file is saved, all you need to do is right-click on the file and click on Run as Administrator.

One popup will ask you for the confirmation, click Yes.

Running this program means adding new font as a system font in the system, called the registry.

After clicking on Yes, your PC will restart and the system font will be changed.
