Most users are not concerned with the fonts that we have in the interface. But many prefer to download new fonts to add to the operating system . However, on many occasions, we end up encountering strange symbols or other problems that would not happen if we left the default system fonts. We are going to guide you to learn how to repair corrupted fonts in Windows 11 and 10 .
Repair corrupted fonts in Windows 11 and 10 from Control Panel
We start by pressing “Start” in the lower left corner of the screen or the “Windows” key and type “Control Panel”, then we give it “Enter”
Next, we will have to click in the upper right corner where it says “View by” and we will have to put “Large icons”. Now what we will have to do is search for “Sources” and click on that option.
Next, a new window opens with several options, we will have to click on the link that says “Font Settings”.
This will take us to a new page where we will have to click on the button that says ” Restore default font settings “. We uncheck the option that says “Hide fonts according to the language settings” and finally we click on accept.
From Registry Editor
We also have another option is to do it from the Windows registry , in this way we will be able to return to the default font configuration of the operating system.
For this we will have to open a notepad with administrator permissions. Then we will click on “Start” and then write “Notepad”, now we will have to press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open it as administrator.
Once we are here, we are going to copy and paste the following code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Fonts]
“Segoe UI (TrueType)” = “segoeui.ttf”
«Segoe UI Black (TrueType)» = »Seguibl.ttf»
«Segoe UI Black Italic (TrueType)» = »Seguibli.ttf»
“Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)” = “segoeuib.ttf”
“Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)” = “segoeuiz.ttf”
«Segoe UI Emoji (TrueType)» = »siguiemj.ttf»
“Segoe UI Historic (TrueType)” = “Seguihis.ttf”
“Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)” = “segoeuii.ttf”
“Segoe UI Light (TrueType)” = “segoeuil.ttf”
«Segoe UI Light Italic (TrueType)» = »Seguili.ttf»
«Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)» = »Seguisb.ttf»
«Segoe UI Semibold Italic (TrueType)» = »Seguisbi.ttf»
«Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType)» = »segoeuisl.ttf»
«Segoe UI Semilight Italic (TrueType)» = »Seguisli.ttf»
«Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)» = »Seguisym.ttf»
“Segoe MDL2 Assets (TrueType)” = “segmdl2.ttf”
“Segoe Print (TrueType)” = “segoepr.ttf”
“Segoe Print Bold (TrueType)” = “segoeprb.ttf”
«Segoe Script (TrueType)» = »segoesc.ttf»
“Segoe Script Bold (TrueType)” = “segoescb.ttf”
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ FontSubstitutes]
“Segoe UI” = –
We can save this file with any name, in fact the only important thing is that the extension of said file is “.reg” without the quotes. Besides this, it is very important to select “All files”, otherwise it will be saved only as a common text file.
Once we have the file saved in the .reg format, all we have to do is right-click and select ” Run as administrator ” and wait for the process in question to complete.
