  2. Desktop Font

    My original question was how do I change my desktop font. The answer I received told me how I could change the SIZE of the existing desktop font. I replied to that response indicating that was not the question I had asked. I have not received a reply.
    So, let me try again. How do I change the FONT (not the size of the font) on my desktop? Asked another way, can I use a different font on my desktop and , if so, how can I select another font?

    Decrease the font size in XAML apps

    I am used to the default font size of UI elements from Windows 7 and the current size in desktop apps in Windows 10. Thus, the fonts in XAML apps is way too big and takes up most of my screen on my smaller laptop screen.

    How can I decrease the font size in these apps?

    All I can seem to find are ways to change the font size on desktop apps or to increase the font size in XAML apps.
