    That would be fine Jerry if they would move the applet along with all of its capabilities and not instead just leave things hangin'.

    I'm OK with that Rick as long as there are people like you around to create the hacks!

    Nothing wrong with a little hope, is there?

    Chuck,

    The complete WindowMetrics category includes the following:

    - Title bars
    - Menus
    - Message boxes
    - Palette titles
    - Icons
    - Tooltips

    The default font, size and emphasis for these is Segoe, 9, bold off. As you appear to find Segoe, 10, bold on easier to view I've attached a WindowMetrics - All.zip file with the following 2 REG files:

    WindowMetrics - All (Default Segoe 9, bold off).reg
    WindowMetrics - All (Segoe 10, bold on).reg

    Sign out/sign in or restart for the changes to take place.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks, Rick. Yes I do find it easier to read/see.

    That's a good find, -Moonshine-. I also note that it's been checked using VirusTotal (Personally I'm not concerned about the 1 flag from Endgame).

    A few observations:

    1. When first run the tool displays a dialog asking whether you want to save your default settings.

    Click to enlarge

    Unfortunately there's no info why you would want to, nor any Help/Info link in the tool that provides information about how the created WindowMetrics.reg file can be used.

    2. Unlike the screenshot on the website, the default theme is actually the opposite, i.e. white text on black. This means it's impossible to tell at first glance that a blank-looking button is actually an inactive Apply button.

    3. Whilst the tool is portable, it does write a config file to record the FirstRun setting... but not the Theme setting. So, if you dislike the default white text on black theme, you'll have to change the theme every time you run the tool.

    4. The website states:
    The program was created as a consequence of the fact that Microsoft has removed this option in the Windows 10 Creators Update version.
    I was a bit surprised that the tool doesn't use up-to-date nomenclature for the process to put the changed settings into effect:

    sys-font-changer03.png
    Click to enlarge

    The tool can also be used with Windows 7 and 8.x but why not 'Sign out'? 'Log Off' hasn't been used since Windows 7. Being picky, appending 'to take effect.' may make the purpose of the dialog a little clearer.

    Anyway... these are really minor quibbles (and just a personal opinion) and I've no doubt the tool will be useful to people like the OP. I've already added it (and its companion tool, Advanced System Font Changer) to my 'Utilities' USB stick because they both make the use of Creators Update just a little bit easier.

    I just think it's a shame that 3rd-parties have to create tools like this to fix issues of Microsoft's own creation.

    Hope this helps...
