  1. Fonts not showing up in control panel or applications


    Following this post (I know it's old), doesn't work for me on Windows 10...
    Installing fonts via command line/script - Page 2 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    The fonts exist in the \windows\fonts folder
    Registry entries are added thus...

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts" /v "ghostdintrek.ttf (TrueType)" /t REG_SZ /d ghostdintrek.ttf /f

    But I can't see them in control panel and word and photoshop don't see them either.

    If I look from a command prompt, the files exist in Windows\fonts. But looking from explorer or control panel they don't show up. If I try to copy a ttf file to the folder from a command prompt it asks if I want to overwrite the file, so it must exist in the fonts folder.

    What am I doing wrong?

    :)

    Hello,

    I found these steps in this forum from back in 2010:

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you to try these steps and check whether it helps in fixing your issue.

    Open font settings by clicking on start, click on control panel, and then click on appearance and personalization, under fonts click on change font settings. And select the font size.

    Step 2:

    If you’re trying to change windows font size then please follow the steps below:

    To change Windows fonts

    1. Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type window color, and then click Change window colors and
    metrics
    .

    2. In the Item list, click the part of Windows that you want to change the font for. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list. Then, make any of the following changes:

    · In the Font list, click the font that you want to use.

    · In the Size list, click the font size that you want.

    · In the Color list, click the font color that you want.

    3. Repeat these steps for each item that you want to make changes to, and then click OK.

    Does that help?

  3. Installed font not showing in Windows 10 Pro

    Hi Greg -- I am not trying to change fonts, I am trying to add a font my team purchased. I have the file on my computer and I installed it. But it is not showing up in the font list on Windows 10 Pro control panel. When I search for it the fonts search
    bar -- it does not show up. When I search in the Windows command line it does not show up. When I drag and drop the font file into the control panel font list, a pop up window says "this font is already installed, do you want to replace" and I clicked "yes"
    and the font is still not there
