Microsoft removed the ability to change the icon text properties in the Creator's Update of Windows 10, which is version 1703.

There are third party apps are available to make these changes.

WinAero Tweaker is free and allows you to do this and more. https://winaero.com/download.php?view.1796

It can be used without installing.
On the first page you should see Advanced Appearance Settings, under that click Icons.
Click Change font... and you'll get your font choices and styles, click to choose what you want and then click OK to apply the changes.
