I dislike MS Mincho: it's too thin, doesn't get anti-aliased, and has an excessive amount of hooks.

Unfortunately, anything that is full-width gets rendered in MS Mincho by default on any program.

I've been looking all over the place, including in the Microsoft IME settings, to no avail. Where can I change the default CJK font from Mincho to something else?

  • You should list some programs where you find this issue, as examples.

  • @user3169 Every program handles fullwidth this way.

There's no registry key to do this; I believe it's hardcoded.

So I settled with MacType, which hooks to processes and overrides ClearType.

One feature it has is to allow you to override/replace specific fonts, including CJK ones, with other fonts, or to just turn on regular ClearType for those specific fonts.
