    Font messed up in Microsoft Edge and Steam


    Hey all, loving Windows 10 so far , however, i do have 1 issue at the moment

    Please see the attached image, this font is also used in Steam in the store. All of the items listed are in this font, making it very hard to read.

    Anyone have any idea how you change this, as its the only thing stopping me from using Edge over Firefox right now, and its making Steam a bit of a chore to use, and im struggling to read anything..


    Thanks in advance

    Try to delete the font cache files located in this folder:
    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local
    Delete all files with FontCache in it, and then restart to see if that solves the problem.

    search for adjust cleartype text and adjust it to your eyes i had to do this and it fixed my issues, windows 10 comes with it preinstalled so just use the search bar or cortana to search for that exact name.

    HUH very strange i have to say i'm baffled as mine looked like that and when i adjusted cleartype it straightened out, maybe something got corrupted, with your install or fonts, did it look like this when you first installed it, or did it take a while to show up?. if it looked like this first off then something is corrupted with your fonts and might need a repair install, or refresh somehow of your fonts. maybe someone on here will know how to refresh your fonts.
