Fastest way to add Fonts in Windows 10


  1. 1. Use Windows Search to search for and then open Font Settings. You will now see a list of the installed fonts.

  2. 2. Carefully note the name of the font you want to use as default for Windows 10.

    IMPORTANT: Precision is important. The registry edit may not work if the font name isn't exactly as shown in the Font Settings menu, including spaces and capitalization.

  3. 3. Open the Notepad app.

  4. 4. Copy and paste the following text into Notepad.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
    "Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"=""
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

    "Segoe UI"="Name of new font"

    WARNING: Editing the Windows Registry can cause instability. It's a good idea to make sure you have a recent Windows backup available before editing the registry.

  5. 5. Change "Name of new font" in the last line of the text pasted into Notepad to the name of the font you want to use. The quotation marks should remain. In the screenshot below, the font is changed to Californian FB.

    Notepad open with a registry edit to change the default font of Windows 10.
  6. 6. Click File Save as. A File Explorer window appears to let you save the file.

  7. 7. Select the dropdown next to Save as type and change the selection from Text Documents (*.txt) to All Files.

  8. 8. Enter a file name in the File Name field. The filename itself can be whatever you want, but it must end with a .reg extension. In the screenshot below, for example, we named the file californian-fb-font-change.reg.

  10. 10. Open File Explorer and navigate to the .reg file you just saved.

  11. 11. Double-click the .reg file.

  12. 12. A warning will appear to remind you that editing the registry may cause errors. Click Yes.

  13. 13. A confirmation message will appear. Click Ok.

  14. 14. Restart your computer. The font change will take effect after you restart Windows.
