    A font I installed no longer can be deleted, appears on my browser at times.


    Hello! I need assistance with this issue I've encountered fairly recently. I've attempted to search fixes but could not find anything that fits my designated issue.I installed a font called "Helvetica Neue" yesterday because it was a font I wanted to use. The font didn't really work too well with what I was needing it for, so I attempted to delete it, and it no longer has a delete button from the only way I can access it, Font settings. Control Panel does not show the font at all so I couldn't do it that way either. The font has now started to pop up in my Chrome browser in websites like "Wayb

    Deleting Fonts from Windows 10 that don't appear in regedit

    I have a "Bliss" font that I use on other systems and is licensed for use on my Surface Pro with Windows 10 - Version 1809

    It is currently in my fonts list, but unfortunately the Bliss-Regular.otf file I installed appears to be conflicting with a BLISS-Regular_01.otf version of the same name font, and it's not presenting properly.

    I've tried the simple steps to uninstalling/deleting the problem file, but I can only delete the new file, and the old file remains due to the 'in use' issue.

    I've attempted the steps to deleting the file from the registry; however, the Bliss font doesn't even exist in the registry.

    It doesn't appear in either of these areas:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

    This sure has been a time-killer. I hope I can receive some help here. Thank you.

  3. Bolded Font on Internet Browsers

    Hi,

    This issue may have been caused by a Windows 10 update that changed your font settings automatically. If you recently updated your operating system, we suggest that you follow these steps to see if the font will go back to normal:

    • Type font in the search bar.
    • Select Change Font settings.
    • Click Restore default font settings.

    Let us know the status of the issue to assist you further.
