    Changing default font


    It seems the default font on this WIndows is Arial and it's really ugly, especially when reading an entire page in Chrome or in any other browser. Tried to change the font in all browsers- no result. It can change only the size- Arial still there. It bugs me that it's everywhere, even in games. This compact font in games is really annoying and made me quite after playing a few minutes. I have no problems with overlapping or unreadable font problems I've read on this forum. Suggestions?

    Note: I upgraded to win10 and didn't do a fresh/clean install.

    I used Winaero Tweaker and changed the font used in many UI elements including icon labels. It worked very well.

    I am using it too but it changes only the Windows shell explorer font. The font Arial or whatever the hell is that is still used by all programs, games etc
