  1. Japanese fonts look wrong on windows 10


    I recently got a new work PC and I've noticed a problem with the way Japanese fonts are rendering in web browsers. I've tried it in Chrome, Edge and Firefox and they all look the same.

    This is how they look on my windows 10 machine:

    And this is how they look on Windows 7

  2. [Wndows10][desktop][Fonts]want to change the font to view Japanese folder name/file name on English edition

    Hi, Tac.Kane.

    If you're on an English Windows 10 system and your preference for East Asian characters is to see Japanese glyphs, then you may want to include Japanese in your profile language settings (particularly if you want to be able to type in Japanese), or you may
    want to install optional Japanese fonts without changing your language settings. Either will add additional Japanese fonts and will provide the experience I think you're looking for. The following topic includes information on adding a language into your profile
    or just adding an optional font feature:

    Some fonts are missing after upgrade

    Please take a look and let us know if this helps you resolve your issue.

    [Wndows10][desktop][Fonts]want to change the font to view Japanese folder name/file name on English edition

    Hi,

    I'm using Windows 10 English edition.

    I want someone to help to resolve font trouble on Desktop/Explorer.

    When I open explorer folders/files are on. the folders/files name has DoubleByte(or MultiByte). now explorer uses Chinese Font Shape for this name. but I want to see Japanese Font Shape.

    I don't want to change system fonts because all charactors shape will be changed.

    Current

    English (Alphabetic,Num) -> Segoe UI

    Japanese (DBCS/MultiByte) -> Segoe UI

    Requirement

    English (Alphabetic,Num) -> Segoe UI

    Japanese (DoubleByte/MultiByte) -> Meiryo or some Japanese font

    not solution

    English (Alphabetic,Num) -> Meiryo or some Japanese font

    Japanese (DoubleByte/MultiByte) -> Meiryo or some Japanese font

    Yours sincerely,

    Tac.

    Hi TyrannoPaulus. Welcome to the TenForums @ TyrannoPaulus

    If you use Chrome can you check the exact font it is using in both version of Windows. Custom fonts is under Appearance.

    Is the font the same or is it different?
