If able, you could copy all the default fonts included in Windows from his computer and install them in yours to see if that may help.

Fonts are just fonts, they don't control anything and are just used for the text.

If you changed their size, then it may have been in the Advanced Appearance Settings for the size of items. See steps 7 and 8 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to see if that looks like were you changed the size at.

After installing fonts from a web page...

I am using WINDOWS 7, and loading free fonts from the internet.

Once I have the fonts I want downloaded and installed in the "FONTS" section, can I delete all the misc. folders that each font downloaded on my computer?

The fonts are installed and in the correct section... but now I have tons of folders in my "download" file. Can I safely delete them, and still have access to the fonts I installed?

I'd appreciate anyone's help on this. TY so much

Hello MsPacker, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes. Once you install the fonts, you no longer need to keep the downloads. You might keep a copy of them saved somewhere though incase you may ever need to reinstall Windows. This way you will have the fonts available to quickly reinstall afterwards as well.

Hey Brink,

I was sent here from eightforums[dot]com. I have a few corrupted fonts, I did a fresh install and they are bad again so it might be the way they are. Any chance if you have these could I get them off you please.

The fonts are;

MS Sans Serif standard
MS Serif Standard
Courier

They all are very blocky almost impossible to read, as if you zoomed into 250% rasterised font. They neither show up as OTF or TTF, they don't give a font type as the rest do in font manager or Photoshop CC.

I really appreciate it mate, thanks in advance!

Hello Astrixau, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since these are system files, you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to repair them first.

I attached the requested fonts in a ZIP file below. You didn't specify which Courier font, so I included all of them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
