HELP! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
 
I download the WinAero tweaker program on my windows 10 machine.
I tried changing all the fonts to Calibri, and they all came into effect after a restart. 
Then my Steam went completely broken. There were no menus or anything. like this: http://imgur.com/a/hE8zK
Panicking I went into WinAero and used the "Reset Advanced Appearance Settings" and restarted. But, the Steam is still broken and the font is not the same as the default windows font!! It's a little different and there is no option to set it to default!
Then I used File > Reset to defaults.
This did nothing.
 
The issues now:
Enabling transparency or opacity for the taskbar in Classic Shell does nothing at all.
 
I really need help, I can't launch any Steam game and the whole OS is glitchy and the fonts are screwed up e.g. http://imgur.com/a/TDNG1 http://imgur.com/a/9pnRX  http://imgur.com/a/Qr6pZ
I can't reset everything as it requires going into every menu. There is no option to reset every setting..
I am using Acer S277HK, ClearType enabled in Windows, 170% Scaling using Windows10 DPI Fix
 
EDIT: Enabling transparency and show color on taskbar does nothing. So taskbar is broken now. thanks winaero!!

I fixed the taskbar but the chrome font is weird and shouldn't be as it is... http://imgur.com/a/OuizT
 
after 2 restarts and resetting everything in the winaero menus I get this: http://imgur.com/a/Rt2O6
the font should be thicker like the windows default one!

The only thing I can recommend is seeing if you have a restore point just before the tweaks in System Restore. It's entirely possible your tweaks overwrote Window's own fonts.

 

If you do not have a restore point then uninstall WinAero and ClassicShell. Finally reset your Windows 10 defaults for colors and fonts. Windows 10 has a reset option that saves your personal data but you would need to reinstall your apps and programs including Steam.

    • Colors: Windows lets you tweak your desktop's colors and sounds, sometimes into a disturbing mess. To return to the default colors and sounds, right-click the Start button and choose Control Panel. In the Appearance and Personalization section, choose Change the Theme. Then choose Windows from the Windows Default Themes section.

    • Fonts: Have you tweaked your fonts beyond recognition? Return them to normal by opening the desktop's Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts. In the left pane, click Font Settings and then click the Restore Default Font Settings button.

Thanks dude! Really appreciate your reply.

 

I don't know what was going on, but before all this happened I created two restore points! Just remembered.

 

If anyone has this issue but no restore point, do the following for all tweaks under the Advanced Appearance Settings thing:

 

1. Click on the sub-menu item (e.g. Icons)

2. Click on the "Reset This Page To Defaults" button in the top left of the window

3. Click "I'll do it myself later" for the dialog that appears at the bottom of the window asking you when to reboot

4. Click the "Apply Changes" button on the sub-menu window selected (under the font preview)

 

If you do not do the exact steps above it won't work. It's a  bug in WinAero
