I have and I need to know how to change the desktop icons fonts to bold:

enter image description here

I tried to find any css files like those in Xfce or Gnome to modify the desktop icons font style but I could not able to find any thing in ~/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme or ~/.local/share/plasma/look-and-feel for the current active desktop theme.

Thanks to DK Bose, the file he regarded in the comments ~/.config/kdeglobals leads me to answer the question with some limitations.

The solution

Open the file ~/.config/kdeglobals using kate and search for the following block of code:

[General]
BrowserApplication[$e]=firefox.desktop
ColorScheme=Card
Name=Card
XftAntialias=true
dbfile=/home/saidbakr/.mozilla/firefox/3tzvfegj.default/places.sqlite
fixed=Hack,9,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular
font=Noto Sans,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular
menuFont=Noto Sans,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular
shadeSortColumn=true
smallestReadableFont=Noto Sans,8,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular
toolBarFont=Noto Sans,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular
widgetStyle=Breeze

Replace the Regular in the line font=Noto Sans,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0,Regular by Bold.

By this way the desktop icons font will be in bold.

The Limitation

Not only desktop icons fonts will be affected, almost all folders views in Dolphin will have bold icons font.
