    How to Restore Default Font Settings in Windows


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

    You can change the following font settings in Windows:
    • Hide or show fonts and font families you want in your programs.
    • input language settings.
    • Allow fonts to be installed using a shortcut (advanced). By default, this setting is turned off (unchecked). To save space on your computer, you can choose to install a shortcut to a font file instead of the file itself. If the font file becomes unavailable, you might not be able to use the font.
    This tutorial will show you how to restore default font settings for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

  3. Default font settings restore.

    Hello Triggsy18

    Please follow these steps

    Go to the Windows 10 search field on the taskbar, and type Control Panel. Click on the Control Panel link under the search results, to open it. With the Control Panel open, go to Appearance and Personalization, and then Change Font Settings under Fonts.

    Under Font Settings, click the Restore default font settings button. Windows 10 will then begin restoring the default fonts. Windows can also hide fonts that are not designed for your input language settings. To do this, select the Hide fonts based on language
    settings checkbox before clicking on the Restore default fonts button.

    I hope it helps
