Changing System Font

hello, is there a SAFE way of changing my system font because i want my OS to look more customised than it already is.

i really don't know what to do since when i look at other forums i find that you have to change the registry and sometimes the computer doesn't like it and i don't want to risk damaging my system.

  1. Right-click an empty area of the desktop.
    Select "Properties"
    Click the "Appearance" tab
    Click "Advanced"
    Click the frame inside the box named "Active Window"
    Notice the "Fonts" area now shows the name of the font in use. Here you can change it to whatever you like. it's size and color.
    Click Ok when done.

    (right-click for properties),
    Disable
