    Desktop Icon Font 1803

    I was using the following registry hack to change the font and it's not changing now. I like a larger font & bold.

    Can anyone tell me what has changed ? I use it with a solid blue screen.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00; Created by: Shawn Brink; Created on: February 17th 2017; Tutorial: Change Icons Text Size in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]"IconFont"=hex:ef,ff,ff,ff,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,bc,02,00,00,00,\ 00,00,01,00,00,00,00,53,00,65,00,67,00,6f,00,65,00,20,00,55,00,49,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

    Also, just noticed the Taskbar Time/day and date just changed to black changing the Taskbar color didn't help.
