Q: Missing Fonts after Windows 10 upgrade

I am missing fonts after Windows 10 upgrade. I have tried to reinstall the one of the fonts which is an open type font, but now the font shows up as rectangles. Not sure if I have others missing.  I use a publishing program called PagePlus.

Any help would be appreciated.



I think this was resolved in this other thread:

Hello Peter, 

I've read some of the entries and I see you've helped others before. 

My problem is pretty much the same though not entirely. I have lost the Arial Nova family of fonts which I got strangely enough when I upgraded to Windows 10. There was a substantial update/upgrade of Windows 10 yesterday on 28/09/2016. Now after this I can't find the said fonts family on my computer. Is there any way of fixing this? 

Thank you very much in advance,

CHRISTIAN

Hi Christian,

You may follow the steps below to fix missing fonts in Windows 10.

  1. Type Edit in Cortana.
  2. Then click on option Edit language and keyboard options.
  3. Find Language option and check what language is set as default.
  4. If you want to set a different language, you can change it by clicking “Add a language” option.
  5. Choose your preferred language and click Set as default.

This isn’t the best solution, but it might help if English is not set as your predefined language, so it’s worth checking out.

Thank you.

Karina Aris - Are you serious? I am looking for help with several fonts that have gone missing on my system - suspiciously in the last few weeks and since major Win 10 updates - and found your suggestion. Can you understand why your Microsoft "clients" might be frightened of this suggestion? 1. Why type anything in (or even use) Cortana?

2. To fix a font issue, you want me to "Edit language and keyboard options"? 2. You want an English-only speaking User to add a language? 4. You suggest an English-only User NOT set English as their predefined language?? I am mystified, without further explanation. I do have English Australia and English UK loaded.

Why have my fonts disappeared? Publisher shows them as censorship masks. Word and Powerpoint show them as present but display them as arial. Control Panel doesn't show them at all but installing them, reports they are already installed. After being re-installed, they still don't appear. Amerigo BT is one example but I have several others, even Arial Black.

I agree totally with your post.

I have the same issue with all my ITC fonts. GONE!!!

I was wondering if you have received any response on this. I do not feel I should have to repurchase all the fonts I have lost. (Yes, the were purchased, not "given to me by Windows, or free fonts).

I hope someone will respond and let us know what we are supposed to do.

Debby, I had the problem with quite a few fonts but I think they all came with various software over the years and are stored in my own 'fonts library' from which I install as I require. Biggest problem was with CorelDraw so I manually installed the fonts that I immediately required. Now, several Windows updates later, I notice that the "missing" fonts appear to be back again - no 'censorship masks' in Publisher, and Word/PowerPoint seem to report all fonts OK. Would be nice if MS could just admit "oh, sorry guys, that's our fault but we'll fix it in the very next update, v10.0.0.5.6.8.45.34.23.0.1 (font issues sorted)." Check your fonts, have they magically returned?
