    System font missing?

    I recently had to do a cleanup of the font folder due to some corrupt fonts. I am now using Suitcase to run fonts for Adobe programs. I DO NOT want to do a System restore or font restore.

    I seem to have messed with the font that creates the check marks, chevrons and other little icons around the Windows 10 UI. Especially in the right-click menus (which i can't screenshot), but also these two places:

    System font missing? 19a4b716-30a2-46d4-a70c-161fe4885716?upload=true.jpg

    I guess it should be a little microphone next to "Type here to search"?

    System font missing? a0e3e4bc-6230-4c96-967a-e3f86af27267?upload=true.jpg

    The white rectangle should be the icon for two people.

    I downloaded the standard Win 10 system fonts and installed them, but that did not help.

    Can someone help me to find out which font creates those icons , and how to fix the registry to make it point to that font?

    I believe it's Segoe MDL2, and that font IS installed. So perhaps the registry needs some tweaking.

    Please help. Thanks!

  3. Missing fonts after upgrade

    I just had an automatic upgrade of windows 10 completed and some fonts are missing,

    I have read up and tried the steps in the optional font features but the fonts are missing from the list.

    The particular language group is the Pan European. The font I am after is Rockwell nova.

    Is the any way I can access this as it is crucial to a job I am about to complete.
