Q: Creator's Update - Courier New

Well, my PC was updated, and I spend a lot of time in putty sessions.

The first thing I noticed was how awful it was to read.  When I did a comparison I found they've changed the courier new font.

Is it time to find a new font? I really don't want to.  Maybe a public alternative? It would be nice just to use the built in font, but this is not suitable for development, or just reading.   Or maybe there was some system wide rendering change I can undo?

Hi Jason,

There is a possibility that this could be one of the recent changes with Windows 10 Creator's Update. We suggest that you share your insight by sending a feedback using the Feedback Hub app that can be downloaded from the Store.

Feel free to post again if you have other concerns.

Regards.

The character 2 is intolerable and sticks out like an sore thumb. All my programs is save as courier new and I don't want to change it.  I used feedback and enclose an screen print that had about 20 of these 2.  I assume they will correct this error as complaints begin to pile up as updating to creators continues. If not this shows Microsoft is as bind as an bat or fixing it is low priority.

I have the same problem. I can not look at it, this "new" pattern pulls its eyes.
Please repair. Thank you

I found the older version of Courier New (Version 6.9) on a previous Windows 10 installation media I had

I uploaded the font family to my DropBox account.

It is in a folder, download the folder, inside the folder are 4 fonts, right click each file and choose install, you will be asked if you want to overwrite the original (old) font, choose yes

I'm working on PC for normal work, programming, Internet, Excel, a little playing games.
I have tried updating the GPU (GF970), resetting the Clear Tipe, and sharpening the sharpness in the monitor menu.
  It did not provide any solution. Courier New is still bad.

Current version Courier New  for creator update is 6.9. Sounds like Font got accidentally change for if redesign version would have change.  If redesign their testing would have discover the problem. If accidentally change nobody would bother testing it.

I had to take one PC on my network back to Anniversary because of losing keyboard and mouse on KVM switch. The 4 courier new font 6.90 look great. So I copy them to an directory. Switch over to Creator and delete the 4 courier new font 6.90. Went to my directory and installed the Anniversary 4 courier new font 6.90. I was now expecting Creator to look as good as the Anniversary but they look as bad as before. So its not the fonts. Its the program that uses the fonts.

Windows File Protection may or may not protect True Type Fonts.

It might roll back your changes.
