    How to restore default UI font?


    Hello,

    I installed a VS and I like everything but the font. The problem is, when I switch to another theme, the font is still there. I already deleted the font and I even tried to edit the msstyles of that theme, but it doesn't help. How do I get Segoe UI back? I hope someone here can help me

    Regards,

    Did you delete the theme also?

    Yeah, I moved the theme files. BTW, I only have this problem on my primary user account. Maybe that helps.

    I found the issue. I had to restore the values in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics to default.
