    Japanese fonts look wrong on windows 10

    I recently got a new work PC and I've noticed a problem with the way Japanese fonts are rendering in web browsers. I've tried it in Chrome, Edge and Firefox and they all look the same.

    This is how they look on my windows 10 machine:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi TyrannoPaulus. Welcome to the TenForums @ TyrannoPaulus

    If you use Chrome can you check the exact font it is using in both version of Windows. Custom fonts is under Appearance.

    Is the font the same or is it different?
