Windows 10 Global Font type change through Color and Appearance
In Windows 7, we had the option to adjust screen resolution, DPI (set custom text size) and color metrics to suit accessibility needs. I prefer to have the Tahoma font globally as this is very clear of all.
In Windows 10 I realise that the resolution changes and Custom Display Setting are mutually dependent and automatically changes. In Window colour metrics the option to change the colours, font type are missing. In Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display has some customizing options, the ability to update the font type has been removed.
Can we please bring this feature back asap?
STEPS in Windows 7: Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization through Windows Color and Appearance, we were able to access the Colour Matrix. From the Advanced appearance settings when we launch the Window Colour and Appearance dialog, for all text based controls, we were able to change the font size, colour and font type. This font type feature and the font size feature for each items changed the global settings and this was one of the very useful feature in windows as all apps inherited these settings.
Still nothing meaningful from Microsoft support on my original request. Yes, you can use Windows+U and do somethings but it does not work everywhere. Certainly does not replace the Windows 7 features I mentioned in my original post. The feature in Windows 7 allowed back ground color changes, font color changes. Why is it so difficult to put the same features in Windows 10? Perhaps a more meaningful response from Microsoft could be forthcoming?
This is hugely important. As someone who works with students with dyslexia and speaks frequently with adults with dyslexia, this is an issue that is causing difficulty with access. This needs to be addressed as the highest priority.
This is an extremely important issue and must be fixed on a high priority.
I concur with the above. These accessibility settings are very important and should be given high priority.

I fully support the above comments. That is also my experience. Accessibility settings such as these need to be afforded a high priority ahead of the next scheduled upgrade, if at all possible. Thank you.
Hi Could you please bring back the feature it is very helpful for the web developers.
Thanks for your feedback, we will pass your feedback on to the engineering team. In the meantime in Display under Ease of Access (Windows + U) you can select the options "Make text bigger", and "Make everything bigger". Please continue to share your feedback and upvote posts that you agree with.
