comment How to restore the default Google search engine in Chrome?
No help to me. An installer has managed to overwrite the google:baseURL variable with a link to feed.sonic-search.com, which redirects to search.snapdo.com. Trying to find how I can reset google:baseURL to the correct value. The Google search engine has exactly the text you provide but gets the bad link injected.

comment How do I disable narrator forever?
Seems a bit extreme. Surely there must be another way. Perhaps using AutoHotKey to eat the keystroke that starts it; I'll give that a try.

comment Exit batch file from subroutine
The point of the question is how to do it from subroutines (i.e. using call) so this doesn't answer it.

You could add mappings to that registry file that map the real Segoe Print files to different names allowing you to choose to use them elsewhere if you like.

There are many alternative apps for notes but why should I be forced to use another app just because the developers/designers of the built-in one made a poor choice?

I'm disturbed that you tried this on Windows 8.1. I guess that means that after 4 major releases of Windows (Sticky Notes appeared in Vista I think) Microsoft still haven't seen fit to allow font choice in the Sticky Notes app.

Probably a better option than deleting the font files but will of course render the Segoe Print font unusable system wide, which may be a problem for some.

The above commenters are right. While deleting a font file is less risky than deleting other files, there is always the chance of causing problems and in general system files should not be tampered with.
