Windows 10 Creators Update - Gibberish in some apps

After installing Creators Update, I'm getting Gibberish in some apps instead of English where previously it worked just fine.

I seem to not be the only one with this problem (see here).

This happens on all my devices, all of which use Hebrew as a secondary language for non-unicode apps (although - strangely enough - the issue occurs on apps that are in English).


         May 25, 2017—KB4020102 (OS Build 15063.332) released with fix regarding the issue !

  • Addressed issue where some non-Unicode fonts (Courier, MS Sans Serif, etc.) do not render characters correctly on non-Latin, single-byte system locales (Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, etc.). Black bars or other artifacts appear instead.
