    Determine Current Font


    How do I tell my current font in Windows 10?

    I see all kinds of tutorials on changing fonts, increasing and decreasing fonts, but how do I tell which font I'm currently using?

    The reason I ask, my profile looks nice, crisp and clear but my daughters profile on the same computer is hard to read and has black shadows behind the letters. I would like to make her profile like mine but I have no idea which font I'm using and fear changing mine so it doesn't end up like hers.

    Windows 10 version 20H2 build 19042.804

    • Type font in the search bar.
