    Strange font in certain menus and dialog boxes


    In my Windows 10, some messages and command buttons are in a font different from the system default font after the anniversary upgrade is applied. In the screenshots below, you can see that the toolbar area has the usual system font (Segoe UI), but some of the contents, like the tabs in Notepad++, do not. Which setting should I adjust to change it back to Segoe UI?

  2. Strange font in dialog boxes in Win 10

    First thought would be to go to the "Themes" control panel and try another theme pack.

  3. Strange font in dialog boxes in Win 10

    I'd try switching to another of the default stock and see, just in case the default Windows theme was modified or corrupted. Still, if the problem continues it looks like the font may have been removed or overwritten, or maybe just corrupted.

    When did it first break? Maybe run a restore back to just before then.
