Font link issues in the Windows11

wang wang 5 Reputation points

In Windows, font associations are set through the registry. The locations are as follows:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ LanguagePack\SurrogateFallback

The font association operations for the large font library from Founder Corporation work properly in the "Notepad" software of WinXP, Win7, and Win10. However, they do not function correctly in the "Notepad" software of Win11. We would like to know if there have been any changes to the font association mechanism in Win11 and how we should proceed with the setup.

    Thanks for your reply!
     introduces How to Change the Default Font Using the Control Panel.
         but I want to know the mechanism for linking fonts.
         In the Windows operating system, there is a mechanism for linking fonts. 
    If a font has characters that cannot be contained, replace it with some spare fonts.
    It can links one or more fonts into another font, the former referred to as the associated font, 
    and the latter as the base font. Once you associate the fonts, you can use the linking font to display the characters that are not present in the base font.
         Using font linking mechanism, users can choose a font, Then it can displays all characters from different fonts. 
    This font linking mechanism are valid in WinXP, Win7 and Win10 in the Notepad, but not valid in win11, 
    what changes have occurred to the font linking mechanism in win11? How do I set?
