I was looking at fonts in C:\Windows\fonts and decided to sort by the column "Font file names" (might have to enable the column, not sure if it is on by default). I have what looks like 100's of files that have no filename listed.
I have seen these before, but thought they were variations or fonts in a "TTC" type file that shared the same file with other fonts in the same family or such. But when I sorted by filename, I found tons of files that showed no path, but were simple files in the C:\Windows\Fonts directory.
It seems that if a Font family, shown in the windows font display is split among 1 or more files, the 'filename' column is also blank. Does anyone know how to have it display *any* of the filenames? Ideally, it would show the file for the main-font (regular or medium width -- like filename with no "adjectives" on it).
Two examples: "7th Service" having a main file of 7th.ttf + italics in 7thi.ttf would, ideally, show 7th.ttf.
"A Charming Font" would show "A Charming Font.ttf", ignoring variants for expanded, italic, leftleaning, outline, and superexpanded (all separate font files).
Not that groundshakingly important, but mostly curious if builtin font-page could be more helpful.
FWIW, it is easier to locate filenames if you also open an explorer window aside the normal font-display window w/address \\localhost\c\windows\fonts (assuming you allow yourself to read your file system from the local system :-)).
