fonts do not show in drop down(2 posts)
Well, you got me trying it too and I couldn't see the fonts either...
Found this on another forum,
1. Open Notepad and copy and paste the following into it exactly as
Put your cursor at the end of the last line and press Enter to create a
blank line. Now Save As desktop.new in your Windows\Fonts folder.
(Remember to select All Files in the Save as Type drop-down, otherwise
you will get a .txt extension added to the file name.)
2. Open a Command window (Start | Run | cmd, OK). Type:
cd C:\Windows\Fonts and press <Enter>.
attrib -s -h desktop.ini <Enter>. (This removes the file's special
attributes and should make it deletable.)
del desktop.ini <Enter>.
This should have got rid of the damaged file.
4. Now to rename the new file you made earlier, type:
ren desktop.new desktop.ini <enter>
and give it the special attributes it should have:
attrib desktop.ini +s +h <enter>
Did that and it worked for me. Be aware, you must run the COMMAND PROMPT as ADMINISTRATOR to do these functions. I also had to save it to another partition and then copy in into the fonts folder.
There was ONE difference between what was there and the new file, UICLSID vs. the old one have on CLSID on the second line? I wonder if this was because I migrated from Vista to Win7?
Anyway, it fixed it for me.
