    How to Change win 8.1.1 System Font

    I've searched a lot on this topic but I have failed to find anything that works. In particular, the suggestion to use option 2 or 3 (registry edit) of a similar tutorial in the win7 forums, does not work for me.

    Has anyone gotten this to work? Particularly on win 8.1.1?

    Open your theme in Resource Hacker or use Restorator 2007.

    Navigate to the String resource and expand.

    Drag/drop (or export) Neutral on your Desktop.

    Open Neutral.rc in a text editor for example Notepad++.

    Replace all instances of Segoe UI with your font.

    Save Neutral.rc

    Drag/Drop (or import) the new Neutral.rc from Explorer back into your Resource Hacker or Restorator with Assign
    Save your theme.
    Then apply

    if you use a modded theme you can use Vista Style Builder

    Thanks for the response drakulaboy --

    However, this does not work for me either.

    I have Windowblinds and I think that it may be part of the problem.
