1.) Changing the fonts under Windows 11 / 10 / 8.1!
Starting with DesktopOK
version 5.21 it is possible, especially with Windows 11, 10 and 8.1, to exclude a little bit of individuality in the fonts. Please start DesktopOK and open the subroutine (function) Windows Metrics
and change the Windows fonts according to your wishes!
Please start the Windows Metric in DesktopOK via the Menu ► Tools ► Windows Metrics

2.) Why is it no longer possible from the system on Windows 11. 10, 8.1?
Apparently, we all should work like clones, use the same food and drink, use the same programs and it is the same with the font styles
Although there are millions of fonts and it was even possible in Window 3.1 and 95 (1995), is it not possible in 2018? Too bad :-( that this way will take, regression instead of progress
It is about cost savings, the burden of individualization.
3.) What should I consider when changing the system fonts under Windows?
As a rule, Windows must be restarted or at least log off and log in with the currently logged-in User account.
When changing the system fonts under Windows no matter whether Windows 11. 10 or 8.1 etc. Accept not all programs the font changes, this one can look for alternatives if it is very disturbing.
Windows Metric subroutine , you have two Windows Metrics
buttons working under Win-7, and Desktop Theme
allows you to directly START the desktop themes (DESIGNS) if you somehow do not like a change, change the desktop theme will also restore the default system fonts.
Likewise, you can use the button Default to reset the font to standard (default) system fonts.

The standard font problem on Windows ;-)
4.) C++ commands SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS & SPI_GETICONMETRICS
As you can see above in Windows 10 shot screenshot with Font Resize Solutions, to resize System Fonts with this Small Desktop Tool makes a pretty good impression on Windows 10, even if this is the old solution from Windows XP.
However, you can use this easily Font Resize without any problem as a font and display improvements tool on any desktop, even on earlier versions of Microsoft 's Windows operating systems or use to have the always individual Fonts in other Programs, whether it is a plain Windows desktop computer, or if you want to change the Font on the Tablet PC, Surface Pro / Go, or even as an administrator on a server operating system in the server room. It's a simple yet effective font changing solution that has been tested and verified
successfully on many MS-OS-s.

Questions for this:
- Hello, I'm not totally sure this is due to DesktopOK but I'm not sure what else it would be. I rebooted my PC today for the first time in a week or two since I enabled the "Save icon spacing" and "save icon size" options in the Save Options. Now, all my icons are very tiny and the icon text is pushed to the right side, rather than under the icon like normal. I seem unable to alter this in anyway using windows settings. As far as I know, DesktopOK is the only app that has any control over my icons at all. Thanks!
- I should have included, the fix that you had told me to use last time to reset (the registry patch that updates HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics provided here: https://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-DesktopOK&faq=21) still works to get things back.
I’ve also realized that I can get all the fonts back to the values shown in the attached capture image by double-clicking each Font (Icons, Message boxes, Tooltips, etc.) and specifying 11. They then appear as 9. That sure seems like a bug though (needing to enter 11 to get it to show 9). As noted in my prior message today (below), when I change some to larger, it shrinks others which made it tough to figure out how to get it back to the starting values manually.
What would be great would be an option to turn off Align to Grid, position the bottom and top row of icons where desired, then have DesktopOK figure out the proper Vertical Spacing on that system to achieve when set back to Align to Grid.
- Trying to use the metrics app, but its changing ALL the options at the same time. I just watn to change title bar at the moment, but it populates the change to every setting?
- Why o why did you remove the metrics option? The icon spacing on the desktop is now gone???
- I had reported a similar problem a few months ago (you had requested I send you a screenshot, which I did on February 1, 2018). I figured I'd give it another try with the latest version. My goal in changing vertical icon spacing is to get the icons on the bottom of the screen as close to the taskbar as possible (so they're most likely to be visible behind a window that doesn't quite fill the screen). I am able to get the icons closer to the taskbar by adjusting the "Vertical Spacing" but it also changes the fonts in Menu and Title bars (e.g., in Notepad, but not MS Office programs) and in Windows Explorer. Restoring the original spacing settings does not fix. Changing individual font sizes has an add effect -- to get them to 10 and Windows 11, which appears to be the right value (looks like before changes), I need to select 12, but if I try to set that for more than one, other font sizes are reduced, as if there is a sum of font sizes that needs to remove below a certain value, so increasing some forces others to go down. As a reminder, I'm running dual displays at different scale factors (main screen at 125% and secondary screen to the left in portrait at 10 and Windows 110%). Unless everyone is having the same problem, this could be related.
