    Hello ice111, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It looks like you need to turn on ClearType.

    I have enabled the cleartype already.

    I suspect it is related to the font type used in the system application dialog
    I am using Windows 10 Japanese edition and then i change it to use English by installing the language pack,
    So, the font display in the dialog is used for Japanese edition, and the English used a different font type which caused the strange looking font,

    Besides, I have alraedy configured the regional font settings to use English (US) already

    So how can I change the font type?

    In that case, you could see if changing the default system font may help. You may need to try a few different fonts until you find one that looks best to you.

    as you can see the path it is shown instead of \, eventhough I have changed the regional settings, and other applications work fine except those old Win32 application (like system application dialog)

    What could be the possible solutions for these..
