I read last week about it, but can´t remeber where :-(

If I recall correct, there was a font name named, that Windows replaces
with its default font depending on os version and language.

Something like "if you set MS Sans Serif as font, on WIN7 it s replaced
by Segoe UI 9 pt, on Win 10 it is replaced by Tahoma 11".

Do you have any info about this?

tx + greetings
Bernd

Do you mean "MS Shell Dlg" and "MS Shell Dlg 2"?
