It’s time to use fancy fonts on Windows 10 Mobile

Recently, developers at XDA Forums have been able to Interop Unlock Windows 10 Mobile which gave advanced capabilities like editing registry to users. It’s not sure whether we will have this advantage in final build too, but as of now you can have a taste of it.

Now developers at xda have found a hack to change the default font throughout the OS. XDA-Dev hacker Denisf1981 has posted this hack to give you a selection of 3 more fonts (Buxton Sketch or Comic Sans or Oksana) for your Interop Unlocked Windows 10 Mobile handset.
The steps are quite easy:-
1. Connect the windows phone to the PC and navigate to C: \ This PC \ Windows Phone \      Phone \ Windows \ Fonts and paste the segoeui3.ttf source (1st2nd3rd fonts).
2. Edit these records using registry editor.
PATH = SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Fonts
KEY = Segoe UI (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Black (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Bold (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Light (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType) = segoeui3.ttf
3. Restart your windows phone to see the result.

Note that you should not use other fonts except the ones included in the hack instructions, as else your phone will be stuck in a reboot look and will need to be recovered using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool.
So if you want to try this trick out, just jump in but before that, must go this the xda forum original article here.
