    Make Desktop Icon Fonts Bold and Larger

    Prior to the Creators edition I was able to make the fonts under each desktop icon larger and bold. When I installed the Creators update those fonts reverted to their defaults and I can find no way to change them back to the way I had them. I think I used Control Panel/Display to change them previously but am not sure about that. Display does not appear in Creators Control Panel.

    How can I now change those fonts?

    Thank you.

    Apparently the fine control of fonts was 'simplified' in the Creators Update. Brink gave a list of tutorials on setting fonts in the registry in answer to this similar thread.

    You can still manually change all of those using the .reg files from the tutorials below except for "palette titles" in Windows 10 Creators Update. "Palette titles" are no longer available.

    Advanced sizing of text ... gone with Creators Update ?!
