    New font doesn't show up the time character properly


    I've switched to the Google Sans font across all my devices (Android and Windows) but there's a small cosmetic problem in visibility of the ":" character in taskbar clock, as you can see it on attached screenshot. I also use small taskbar icons and don't want the date to be there, but it's there. Switched to normal size and back to small but it won't disappear. Completely don't understand this situation as when I've had the Windows Segoe UI font as standard system font, the ":" character showed up just fine, and there was no date when small taskbar icons switch was on. The character shows up properly in all other programs like Word, Wordpad, Notepad as well so it's just clock related.

    Can someone see anything incorrect in the registry file which I used to switch the font? Could it be coding?

    Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts] "Segoe UI (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"="" "Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"="" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes] "Segoe UI"="Google Sans"[/quote] The names of all Google Sans installed font are:

  2. Times new roman bold font

    To further isolate the concern, we suggest that you restore default settings and check if it helps. See steps below:

    • Press the Windows key + X, and then click on Control
      Panel.
    • Change the View by to large/small
      icons, and then click on Fonts.
    • On the left pane, click on Font settings.
    • Under Font settings, click on Restore default font settings.

    If restoring the default font settings does not bring back the Times New Roman Regular font, we suggest that if you have another computer with Windows 10, you can copy the Times New Roman Regular font into your PC's Font folder.

    Why is font not displayed in Character Map


    Recently upgraded to Win 10. Since then, added new font, Helvetica Neue. It shows in File Explorer, it shows in apps generally (see image) but it doesn't show in Character Map. Why not?
