Hi. I decided to change:
  • Segoe UI Variable
  • Segoe UI
  • Arial
  • MS San Serif
  • Microsoft Sans Serif
to Segoe Marker.

But, when I opened some apps and CPL applets, it not showing the font I expected, and shows some font I don't know and it's all italics.

Like this.

I don't have access on my PC for now, because other family member using it.

Regarding your display driver, in device manager, does it show a driver is installed under "Display Adapters" or is it just the default Microsoft driver? Is there an exclamation point beside it?

As your specs attest, your have installed Win11 on hardware that doesn't meet any requirement so there is a good chance the graphics is so old there is no driver that Windows 11 will accept. The only thing I can suggest is to try installing the driver you used in Windows 10. If you don''t have it, Go to Dell Support, enter your service tag, and download the windows 10 graphics driver to see if you can manually install it.

Regarding IPFS, it appears you do not have IPFS node installed on you computer, but you do have the IPFS extention installed in Chrome. See this article IPFS Companion that tells you how to install the node.

I'm asking how to change the font of it, not the contents...

I thought you said in post 3 you had fixed your font issue. Sorry I misunderstood. I'm not aware of any way to change the font for that one specific function. If you changed your system font according to this method all fonts sytem wide should have changed. Only 8 items should have been changed in the registry.

Well, I don't mind now. I made a Windows 11-like Clock and it requires Segoe UI Variable (that runs the Windows 11 taskbar font.)
