Windows 7: Custom system font not working?

Custom system font not working?

Hello. I made my system font Ubuntu, but when I open control panel

or start menu things

It has a quite UGLY font. I used the regedit method

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes
changed MS Shell Dlg & MS Shell Dlg2

And that changed stuff. but how do I apply that to EVERYTHING?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You could use Option 2 step 7 of this tutorial Window Color and Appearance - Change and change what fonts are available there.

There will still be some fonts that will change because they are in the .msstyles and you would need to purchase Windows Style Builder to change the rest of the fonts.
It looks like you're using a third-party custom theme you may be able to get the theme maker to change that for you.


Edit: Look at Post #2 of this. Is there a way to change all the fonts of a visual style? may help you also.
