Hello,

Use the option three mentioned in this tutorial - Fonts - Change

Just replace 'Tahoma' with the font of your choice (Type 'fonts' in start search, open the fonts folder and copy the name of the font you wish to change to).

Atleast, it worked for me this way.

Welcome come to the Seven Forums
That font is in the aero.msstyle it looks like you are using a custom theme if so you will need to ask the theme maker.
