System Font folder is not showing all fonts currently installed in Windows 7

I have windows 7 installed.

I need to to delete a few fonts, so I went into my fonts folder and it only shows 10 fonts.

In all my applications (word, photoshop etc.) more then 10 fonts show up.

I went into the properties of the folder and it shows that it contains 860 files.

When I am able to install a font but the font doesn't show up in the folder.

I enabled the view folder settings to show hidden files.

In font settings I restored default font settings.

Please advise a solution to this problem



Hi fays,


a. Were all the fonts visible in the Fonts folder previously?



I’d recommend you to create a new user account and check if all the fonts appear in the newly created account.


If in the new user account, the issue does not persist; it indicates that your old user account could have gone corrupt.


Access the link below and follow the steps to repair the corrupt user profile:

Hope this helps.
