    :rolleyes: okay, so one day I turn on my computer and all the true type fonts in my c:\windows\fonts file were gone. When I 'find file' for .ttf's they show up as in that file. But I can't see them in the folder. I also can't add anymore fonts to that folder. How can I correct this?

    If your 'add new font' option has disappeared from 'File', it most likely means your Fonts folder has lost its System attribute.

    At a MS-DOS prompt, type the following lines, each line followed by clicking 'enter':

    attrib +s c:\window\fonts
    exit
    or win (to return to Windows)

    Make sure the path to the fonts folder is correct for your machine and reboot when you're finished.

    Good luck,

    I may be a little rusty on dos but i didn't think this rusty.

    ms prompt comes up in c:\windows>
    I typed attrib +s c:\windows\fonts (which is the correct path
    for my machine) <enter>
    but it tells me there no path found.
    I've several other variations but got the same thing.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    thanks from the monkeez =)

    Hi,

    As you're already in C:\Windows, try

    attrib +s fonts

    This should work.

    Good luck,
