windows 7 wordpad (rich txt doc.) fonts and font options missing


  • hello,

    In wordpad, I am missing all fonts, font color and resizeing, and Bold Iatlic and underline. I have everything else.

    I tried system restore and system file checker, same problem. all options in the font section are blank empty boxes and scroll down boxes. clipboard, paragraph,Insert,Editing are fine.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I suggest to use the previous version to restore the application back to the earliest point to see whether it is good.

    If the issue persists, you may try to copy the file from another Windows 7 computer.

    Also, you may try the method in the following link.
