Although Microsoft offers several options to customize the theme, color, etc. there is no user-friendly option to change the font on Windows 10. Even though you can change the font size by changing the scale, you cannot change the default font family. Microsoft uses Segoe UI font, which looks pretty good. However, if you do not like this font and you want to try another font you have on your computer, here is what you can do.
Use a freeware called Advanced System Font Changer. You can change the default system font in Windows 10/8/7 using Advanced System Font Change. You can change the font size, adjust icon spacing, menu height, scroll height, caption height, scroll width and more! You can also restore the default system font.
