Extracting Default Fonts from Windows 10 / 8.1 Image

The phông files in Windows are stored in the C:WindowsFonts directory. Try to open this folder in File Explorer. If you see only a few phông files with the *.FON *.TTF extensions in this directory, then the default fonts files have been deleted và reset by the built-in tools (as described above) won’t help.


The missing font files can be copied from any computer running the same OS version or extracted from the installation disk or an ISO/WIM image of Windows 10 (8.1). Let’s consider the latter case.

To vì chưng this, we need an installation disk with Windows 10 (physical or mounted ISO file). Suppose letter H: is assigned lớn it.

xuất hiện the PowerShell commvà prompt as an administrator & copy the H:sourcesinstall.wim or H:sourcesinstall.esd tệp tin into lớn the C:Distr directory:

Copy-Item H:sourcesinstall.wlặng C:Distr

Tip. If your Windows image contains only the install.esd file, you can convert the ESD file to WIM format using the command:dism /export-image /SourceImageFile:c:distrinstall.esd /SourceIndex:4 /DestinationImageFile: c:distrinstall.wyên /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
Mount the Windows 10 installation image tệp tin (install.wim) to the C:Distrwyên directory:

dism /mount-wim /wimfile:c:Distrinstall.wyên ổn /index:1 /mountdir:C:Distrwim

Tip. In our example, the installation wim image contains one Windows version with the index 1 (/index:1). If the installation image file contains several Windows editions, you can choose the right index as described here.

Tip. If the DISM commvà returns the following error: Error: 0xc1510111 You do not have sầu permissions to lớn mount và modify this image, make sure that the Read-Only attribute is not checked in the properties of install.wim tệp tin.

Copy the original fonts files from the C:DistrwimWindowsFonts to lớn the C:WindowsFonts directory with the replacement of files on the target directory:

Copy-Item -path C:DistrwimWindowsFonts -Destination C:Windows -recurse –container -force

The font files will be replaced with the original ones. Some system fonts that are currently used won’t be replaced; a number of errors in the console window will indicate this.

Now you can unmount the source Windows image:

dism /unmount-wyên ổn /mountdir:C:Distrwim /discard

Restart your computer & kiểm tra if the phông problem persists.

In some cases, it is additionally necessary lớn remix the phông cache (stored in the %WinDir%ServiceProfilesLocalServiceAppDataLocalFontCabịt folder). For this you need:

Launch the service management console (services.msc);Clean up the directory %WinDir%ServiceProfilesLocalServiceAppDataLocalFontCache;Delete the tệp tin C:WindowsSystem32FNTCACHE.DAT;Run the FontCabịt service và reboot your device.

Windows 10/8.1 Default Font Archives

If you don’t have sầu a Windows 10 (Windows 8.1) installation image, you can copy the directory with the original fonts from another computer running the same OS version or use ready fonts archives that can be downloaded from the link below:

Download & unzip the archive for your Windows version và copy its contents lớn the C:WindowsFonts thư mục with the replacement of the files.

Also tải về and apply (double click) the following reg files from the archive

The first file (win_10_fonts.reg) contains a danh sách of standard fonts registered in the registry (HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionFonts).

The second tệp tin (win_10_FontSubstitutes.reg) contains font association settings (HKLM SOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionFontSubstitutes).

Restart your computer, the problem with the fonts should be gone!

Tip. If the problem with fonts is caused by the installation of a new font, you can rephối the contents of C:WindowsFonts before replacement (the fonts you are currently using won’t be replaced). This operation can be performed using the button in the control panel we talked about above.
