Segoe UI Italic (TrueType) =

Segoe UI Light (TrueType) =

Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType) =

  • Now double-click on the file you just created to merge it with the registry and confirm the action when requested by the application.
  • When finished, simply close all applications and restart the computer.
