    Default Font Issue

    I'm trying to install a new font, and when I install it, it installs fine, but it's not showing up in any of my programs or "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts", but it IS showing in "C:\Windows\Fonts", "\\localhost\c$\Windows\Fonts", and "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts"

    Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm trying to install 2 different ones. 1 is OpenType and one is TrueType.

    This is a Windows 10ae build

    One "weird" fix is actually not what you may think.

    Go into the Control Panel / Firewall, make sure its enabled.

    For some strange reason sometimes if the firewall is disabled the fonts wont work.

    Nope, on

    I'm backing up my PC now and doing a fresh install of the OS. Too many issues since my update
