  24. There is a program called "Windows 8 Font Changer" and it works great, you can change all the default fonts in Windows to anything you want…  I just used it and put on Helvetica Neue.  Looks awesome….

  25. There is nothing wrong with windows… you can change anything you want, just google ways too… Windows is by far the best operating system out there, thats why its the most used. Ubunu (linux) and mac os are simply not better because when it all comes down to it, its about gaming, and those OS's are simply not user friendly to the standard gamer, where windows is all around!

  29. What's messed up is I was able to change fonts and sizes in windows 8.1 with the old "Window Color and Appearance" dialog up until recently. I've gone crazy trying to find it again, was I hallucinating when I first did it a couple of months ago or did it get removed in a windows update?

  30. By the way everybody that just watched this video, it doesn't work. Sorry.

  31. how do you change the size of the font ?

  36. didnt work, it does nothing. Its still on default font.

  37. what a load of shit you are microsoft!! what the fuck is wrong with all you fucking people who design these new operating systems!!. windows xp is by far the best and you don't even have the fucking brains to build off the good you already had.
    how fucking simple is it really to give to user control over display options in a simple manner like in XP. FUCK microsoft!!!

  38. «Windows 8 Font Changer» is the best way to change the system font. Use it, bro
