When I was still using Windows 7, usually after reinstalling I immediately changed the default font by going to Personalize > Windows Color > Advanced appearance settings. The reason is because I am not comfortable with the default Windows font, the Segoe UI font.

How to Change Fonts in Windows 8 and 10
How to Change Fonts in Windows 8 and 10

But, after upgrading to Windows 8.1, the settings for changing fonts disappeared without a trace. I wonder what makes Microsoft “dark eyes” to eliminate it, even though these settings can be useful for some users, especially users who like to do “customize” on Windows.

This continues after switching to Windows 10, fonts cannot be replaced like when using Windows 7. So that made me upset and finally tried to search the internet for changing default fonts in Windows 8 and 10, who knows if there is a way to “cheat” Windows so that the fonts can be replaced.

And, I found a way !! Namely by using a file with the extension. Reg, to change the existing registry on the system. The way is easy, aka easy, and here’s how.

Tutorial Changing Font Types in Windows 8, 8.1, and 10

Previously you specify the font you want to use. To see the list of fonts installed on the computer the way is, open the Run command and type ” control fonts “, then click OK. A new window will appear that lists the fonts installed in the system.

Please note the name of the font you want to use, then you can follow the tutorial below.

Change Windows Fonts.
First you open the Notepad application, then copy the script below then paste it into Notepad.

Script:
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”=”NAMA_FONT_BARU”

Please change ” NAME_FONT_BARU ” with the font name you want to use instead, for example I choose ” Tahoma “, then it looks like the image below.

If so, save it by clicking the menu File , then select Save As … . Save wherever it’s up to you, or save it on the desktop just so it’s easier to find it. And in the File name , name the file ending in “.reg”, for example ” change font.reg “. Do not forget to Save as type also select ” All Files “, as shown below. If so, please click Save to save.

A file will be created on the desktop with the name ” replace font.reg “. Please click 2x the file, if a confirmation message appears, just click Yes.

After that to see the changes, please restart the computer and see that the font in Windows has now changed from the Segoe UI to the selected font.

Then, how to restore it to the beginning ?. Take it easy, I also have a method, please follow the method below.

How to Restore Font.

It’s easy, still using Notepad. Please copy the script below then paste it in Notepad. And do the same thing as the tutorial above, by saving it into a “.reg” file. After that, click 2x on the file that was created.
