How to change Windows Default font in Microsoft Winodws 10

Default font interface in the windows 10 is Segoe UI, unlike Windows 7 and earlier version of windows it is not possible to change the fonts just like that.

So when you need to make a change in windows 10 Default fonts, you need to play with the registry of windows. 

Note: Whenever we talk about registry modification, we always recommend to first create a restore point to protect your computer from unseen registry error or critical issues which may arise and can be recovered if we have the restore point created.

So to proceed with the Procedure follow below steps:


Go to the control panel.
Click on fonts options.
Check the fonts and make a note of the font name that you want to use and make sure you have it copied precisely the way it is there because it is case sensitive.

Now open Notepad and copy & paste below registry commands in it :



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"="FONT-NAME"
Remember to change the FONT-NAME on the above line with the desired font you made a note earlier. Now enter it in the exact same way.

Now click on File select save as far in the save as type box select ALL FILES, and now fill the name of the file as myfont.reg and save it to the location where you can find it easily.

Now go to myfont.reg and double click on it and it will prompt you for registry changes and seek your permission, click yes to permit it, and then click ok. 

Now restart the computer. After the restart, you will find that the newer font will replace the windows default fonts.
