Change fontviewer text

Hi there, Is there any way to change the Windows Font Viewer text "The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" to something else? Cheers.

Resource Hacker
then edit file: C:\Windows\System32\en-US\fontview.exe.mui
(Instead en-US could be your system language)

Message table 1, line 11.
Do not forget to compile script button and save.

But when you save this as copy of edited file and replace original, there might be some issues with files owned by a system. Use mentioned links to solve them, if they occur.

Thanks Neutron16, But when I try to open it in Resource Hacker nothing happens - the resource Hacker screen just stays blank. It opens fine in XNResourceEditor but I get an error when I try to save it.

Most of the time, it is not possible to open, edit and save file, which is used by system.
Try to copy file else where and open A COPY.
Save the copy and then replace original with it using a program as I mentioned in post 2.

Did you take ownership of the file? You'll not be able to edit it until you have.

Just as a sidenote, the Windows Font Viewer text "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is used because this sentence utilizes all of the letters in the alphabet, thereby showing you what each letter would look like in any given font.

Yeah the only problem I have with that is you really only get to see the letters in lowercase and there are no numbers. I prefer using ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890. So if anyone has any further suggestions...?
