Windows 10 Creators Update is definitely a milestone in the history of personal computing. Microsoft packed this OS with a series of never-before-seen features and improvements, paving the way for a new era in the industry. But even after months of testing, the Creators Update is not perfect. Many users who upgraded their computers are reporting various technical issues, ranging from install problems to black screen issues. Some of these bugs affect a significant number of users while others rarely occur.

We’ve identified an issue where there is no text displayed in Explorer and Control Panel. Here’s how one user describes the problem:

I have updated my Windows 10 to the latest version. After update I can’t see any text in explorer (no folder and file names), only icons are shown. The same problem is with old Control Panel. On the other hand, the new settings menu is working as well as menu start. I’ve tried restarting, changed english from polish to english and back to polish. I have also created new account, but there is the same problem. How to fix it? It is really annoying.

What to do if text is missing in Windows 10 Creators Update

Solution 1 — Run a SFC scan

  1. Go to Start, type cmd,  select Command Prompt, and then Run as Admin.
  2. Type the command sfc/ scannow, hit Enter, and then wait for the scanning process to complete.

Solution 2 — Uninstall the Comodo firewall

Many users affected by this issue confirm that uninstalling their firewall fixes this problem. It appears that there’s currently an incompatibility between Windows 10 Creators Update and Comodo.

Same problem here. Uninstalling comodo fixes the problem!

Have you encountered any other text-related issues in the Creators Update?
