Fonts Folder not opening

When ever i try to open Fonts Folder either from Control Panel or C:/Windows/Fonts It never opens up, just the green line on the top keeps moving and even once it reaches the end it doesn't open up.

Please help.

Are you sure you wait long enough?
How many fonts did you install yourself? If you have a lot of fonts, the rendering could take some time, ya know

Go to C:\ Windows, right click on Fonts and go to properties to see how many files are in that folder.
As a comparison: I don't believe I installed any fonts myself, still the Fonts folder holds 491 files.
I remember in XP times one of our secretaries brought her PC literally to its knees by installing every font imaginable

I just recently formated my computer, so i havent installed any fonts yet.
but i have installed Corel Draw and Photo-shop, not sure if they install some fonts along with them.

There are 752 files in that folder. Not sure how :-)

How long should i wait?

Hi bhanu2217 and Welcome.

Photoshop does add fonts and I'd assume Corel Draw does too.

Regards 0 fonts, try this:
Click Start, type Font Settings.

Click Change Font Settings.

Click on Restore default font settings under Font Settings.

You might have to restart.

as for the waiting time I guess at least until the HD LED shows no more activity but it shouldn't take more than 4 or 4 minutes, seeing how mine with 471 fonts opens almost instantly.
