Windows 10 is still new operating system, and from time to time there will be bugs here and there. Some of these bugs are just annoying while others are more severe. Today, we’re going to explain you how to fix font bugs in Windows 10.
Solution 1 – Check your language settings
- Type Edit in Cortana.
- Then click on option Edit language and keyboard options.
- Find Language option and check what language is set as default.
- If you want to set a different language, you can change it by clicking “Add a language” option.
- Choose your preferred language and click Set as default.
This isn’t the best solution, but it might help if English is not set as your predefined language, so it’s worth checking out.
Solution 2 – Reinstall the font
If you have upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8, it might happen that your font wasn’t installed properly so you need to reinstall it manually. If this sounds complicated, don’t worry, it’s actually simpler than it sounds. To do this, simply do this:
- Go to C:\Windows\Fonts if you did a clean install of Windows 10. If you have upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8 you need to go to C:\Windows.old\Windows\Fonts.
- Now you need to find the font that is giving you trouble. In most cases it’s Arial or Mingliu.
- Find the font file and open it to preview the font.
- In the preview window click Install on the top right corner and you’ll reinstall the font manually.
- If for some reason these fonts are missing you can always download them.
Solution 3 – Disable scaling on high DPI settings
Sometimes font bugs are caused by high DPI displays, so the solution is to disable high DPI settings. To do this do the following:
- Right click the executable file that has font bugs.
- Select Properties from the context menu.
- Then go to Compatibility tab.
- Disable Display scaling on high DPI settings.
Save the changes and restart your application to see if the problems were fixed. We have to warn you that this solution might cause your fonts in the application to be smaller, so you might have to adjust their size manually. Also, if several applications are giving you problems, you need to repeat this step for each one of them.
