System Font

by debisse In reply to System Font

Windows NT uses special raster fonts as the system screen font for menus, window captions, messages, and other text. A set of system, fixed, and OEM terminal fonts is included with Windows NT to match your system?s display capabilities (that is, forVGA or 8514 video displays). The default system screen font in Windows NT is System, a proportionally-spaced raster font.
The installed system screen fonts are listed in the following Registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion\Fonts

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion\GRE_Initialize




By default, code page 437 (U.S.) fonts are installed using the Ega40woa.fon, Ega80woa.fon, and Dosapp.fon files. Other screen font files are included for international language support; they are identified by the code page number appended to the filename.

Note Windows NT supplies small and large font variations for several display drivers. The major difference between the small and large font variations is the system font set that the Setup program installs. The VGA-resolution system (small) fonts are VGAOEM, VGAFIX, and VGASYS. The 8514-resolution system (large) fonts are 8514OEM, 8514FIX, and 8514SYS.
