Windows 7: Changing font name properties

16 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit - Service Pack 1
Changing font name properties

My problem is that when I copied over fonts to the windows fonts and told it to replace the current font it didn't do what I wanted. For example I copied over a font with the name HS.ttf, and when I now look at the corresponding font it is called HS_1.ttf. I have a certain program that looks in the Windows\Fonts folder for a font called HS.ttf and it currently can't find that file.

I thought no big deal I'll just rename HS_1.ttf to HS.ttf. That's where I have a problem, when I try to do that it gives me the error 'Cannot rename HS_1: A file with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different file name.' When I do a search for a file called HS.ttf it can't be found anywhere. How do I go about finding and removing this HS.ttf and renaming my HS_1.ttf file so that my program can correctly find the font file I want it to?

You need to tell Windows Explorer to show hidden files and folders and show system files.

Open Control Panel, Folder Options.
Click on the View tab. Select Show hidden files, folders and drives.
Uncheck Hide Extensions for known filetypes.
Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).

Now see if the original HS.ttf is there.
