  • Go to C:\Windows\Fonts and that's where Windows keeps all your fonts.  To back them up just take the whole folder and put it on a flash drive or something else.

    Also in that folder you can click on a particular font and see if it's installed or not.  You will see a "install" button at the top

  • Hi,

     

    Some fonts are hidden. Please configure the settings to show them.

     

    Click Start -> type folder options in the search box-> On view tab, under Hidden files and folders, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

     

    Then go to C:\Windows\Fonts, the hidden fonts are displayed. You can select the font, click Show/Hide button.

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
