Fonts Not Displayed When Installing New Fonts


When you add new fonts by clicking Install New Font in the Fonts tool in Control Panel, no fonts may be displayed.


This behavior occurs because the Fonts option has not been enabled by default.


To resolve this issue:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

  2. Double-click Fonts.

  3. On the File menu, click Fonts to place a check mark.

  4. On the File menu, click Install New Font.

  5. To verify that fonts are being displayed, look in a folder that contains font files (such as the Windows\Fonts folder).

More Information

Note that this behavior may occur only the first time you install new fonts.
