    How to Read Event Viewer Log for Untrusted Font Blocking in Windows 10


    A font is a graphical representation of text that may include a different typeface, point size, weight, color, or design.

    The Untrusted Font Blocking security feature provides a global setting to prevent programs from loading untrusted fonts. Untrusted fonts are any font installed outside of the C:\Windows\Fonts directory. This feature can be configured to be in 3 modes: On, Off, and Audit.

    *note If you aren’t quite ready to enable Untrusted Font Blocking, you can run it in Audit mode to see if not loading untrusted fonts causes any usability or compatibility issues.

    After you turn this feature on, or start using Audit mode, you can look at your event logs for details.

    You can exclude specific apps, allowing them to load untrusted fonts, even while Untrusted Font Blocking is turned on.
