    Okay, so I am lazy...

    Every time there is an update to Win 10 (via Insider), I have to go through and reset all the font settings for each of my logins. Isn't there some registry entry that controls font settings so that all I would need do is (double) click it to set the size and weight? It's 2 -3 minutes I would save, and more importantly, the less fiddling the less chance for errors.

    That is the price you have to pay when you run pre-release software which is updated frequently.

    Do you mean these font settings:

    Click to enlarge

    If so, the settings are stored in the following registry location:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
    Once you have them set to how you like, export and save this registry key. If you want, you can open the .REG file and remove the lines referring to CaptionWidth and CaptionHeight.

    This registry location for these settings has remained the same since Windows XP so it's unlikely that MS will change the location in future.

    Hope this helps...
