    Found a fix if you want to use custom system font. Go to the registry to:

    HKCU\ControlPanel\International

    Double click on "sShortTime"

    Open up Character Map, switch to unicode and search for "colon"

    Pick the last one that shows up (U+A789: Modifier Letter Colon)

    Copy that and replace the colon in the sShortTime string.

    Hit "OK" and wait for the clock to change to the next minute. Blam! Colon :)

    Is there any solution that works for the Sound UI? It's still broken after trying that fix, thanks.

    Feeling uber frustrated, I followed these instructions to the letter and still have this stupid rectangle. It's such a small issue but I'm annoyed that I can't fix it.

    This fix successfully resolved my issue with the clock formatting after changing my system font.

    However, I notice the box still shows up in PowerShell in place of the colon. It does not in the regular Command Prompt, nor does it in PowerShell ISE. Does anyone know a fix for this anomaly?

    Hi, do you have the solution to this? I have the same issues here. Somehow the mute and sound UI have this square thing.

    I had the same problem by using a different font but I mean really the time is still there i just ignore it..lol. I just find it amazing that windows 10 has a FONT section in settings and you can see all the fonts on the PC but you cant simply pick a font and hit a button the says APPLY FONT..lol..its seriously dumb. Also Microsoft needs to change the font section to include the ability to use a simple Color Picker to change the color of font System Wide. As so future-Esque and where they are going with it Nowadays Customization is simply a must for users in this day and age.
