We all loved the level of customization provided in windows 7, with windows 8 it has gone one step further with cool start screen backgrounds and the lock screen. But in all this hassle Microsoft crippled the desktop user with some backwardness when it comes to customizing the interface, the icon fonts, the scroll bar size etc. Setting an eye candy icon font is every users first preference when it comes to desktop customization, but all now you can do is adjust the font size.

well that kind of sucks…
So folks here’s the solution all you need to have is binary code for the desired font and few registry changes. First download a simple tool IconFont.. run and enter a value for icon fonts . . .
once done goto registry editor simply by win + r and enter regedit . Now goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
from the IconFont key copy the binary value for the font (you may have to signout and login before you see changes in registry)
that was the tricky part now simply copy this value into the item key for which you would like to change the font for ex. MessageFont or MenuFont. Signout again and you are done..!!!
