    I changed the default system font in windows 10 to "Segoe UI Bold", following the instructions here. After reboot, windows 10 Creator is stuck in time & date screen. Hitting enter always brings it back to the time & date screen.

    Hello Renate, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Are you able to click/tap or swipe up on the lock screen instead to then be taken to the sign-in screen?

    I'm not sure how this could cause that issue, but you should be able to do a system restore at boot to undo it.

    Thank you for your help. I was able to restore my husband's HP Notebook using "Boot to Advanced Startup Option from Hard Reboot Option Six" and using your link for the tutorial "System Restore Windows 10 Option One to do a System Restore of Windows 10 at Boot". I need to let you know, changing the default font to "Segoe UI Semibold" worked OK. There may be a problem with Windows10 Fall Creator not allowing the use of 'Bold' fonts for system default. Renate

    Thank you, I restored Windows 10 Creator on HP Notebook succesfully


    Thank you, Brink! I used the 'Boot to Advanced Startup Option from a Hard Reboot, Option Six' and 'Option One, To Do a System Restore of Windows 10 at Boot'.<br>I need to let you know when I changed the Default System Font to "Segoe UI Semibold", Windows started OK after the reboot. It may be that Windows 10 Fall Creator can't use Bold Default System Fonts anymore.<br>Thank you very much for helping me to get my husband's HP Notebook working again.

    Hello @quinny, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If able, you could do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before making this change to undo it.

    Hello @yxq,

    You could open Settings > Fonts, and select the language like below to see if the Segoe UI font is available for that language.

    If it is, then it's the same as in the tutorial.

    If not, then you'll need to look in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts registry key to see if you may be able to see what is being used instead.
