Changing Default Font In Windows 10 ! A Quick guide

How To Change The Default Font In Windows 10:- Windows 10 has provided control settings for nearly every single feature that it has. But to everybody’s surprise, it doesn’t have provided its users with a straight cut method to change its default font, which is Segoe UI. Some users have used Windows XP for so long that they find it extremely difficult to adjust with the all new Segoe UI font as default. They find it no match to the old Tahoma font that they all loved. If you are one among us, you might have paid a visit to your Control Panel hoping to find a way out. But obviously, just like me, you might have found nothing. This is because there is no inbuilt option to change these settings. So what is the solution? Well, you can always depend on your Registry Editors at such tough situations. Since registry editing is a bit sensitive thing to do, I suggest that you create a system restore point before trying out the following steps.
