Default Windows 8.1 font change

Hi there,

I would like to know if its good or bad for changing the system fonts on 'regedit' on Windows 8.1? I saw a video on youtube, nothing seems sketchy but its was done on 8 and not 8.1. What are your thoughts?

Cheers

I don't think it would be bad if you changed it but be careful what you are doing in the registry..

Yeah it looks tempting to change the system fonts but after a few google searches, some claim it works, some dont, and some say its impossible, I hope to get some answers from forums as my searches didnt answer my question.
