In my previous laptop, I had installed and configured the 'Noto Naksh Arabic UI' font in custom font settings in both Windows 10 and ubuntu, and chrome was able to render the Urdu text in that custom font.

Now I have bought a new laptop with preinstalled Windows 10, and now when I am changing the font setting there is no difference. I still see the same fonts being rendered.

Websites like Twitter have a very bad font for the Urdu language and I want to customize it. Please help!!

  • I tried all the three steps. It didn't resolve the issue.
