3 Ways to Change Font on Windows 10

We have all started converting to digital modes of data registry; that is, most of our work is stored on computers, tablets, and laptops. While the frequency of using these devices has become relatively high, it is naturally conducive for users to customise their devices’ settings to suit their needs and requirements. One such important setting is the ‘font’ setting.

Some people like large fonts so they can read easily. Some people like small fonts so that their PC looks organized and snug, and some retain the default settings—even the font style matters. There might be some styles that look jarring to the eye, but some that look pleasing. 

On Windows 10, you can change the default framework font style, yet to play out this errand, you currently need to alter the Registry.

In past versions, for example, on Windows 7, you can readily access the personalization settings to change the framework textual style for different work area components, including the textual style for File Explorer, symbols, title bars, menus, message box, and then some. Yet, beginning with Windows 10, the choice has been eliminated. You’re currently stuck with the default in-built textual style.

Today we will look at the different ways how to change the font on Windows 10.
