Hi,
My fonts in win95 were mysteriously missing after I installed MS-Office95.  They were still in the FONTS folder (in control panel), but only two of them (Times New Roman & Modern) were selectable in the application menu bar.  I've tried reinstall both MS-Office95 as well as Windows95, but didn't solve anything.  Anyone can help??  Thanks a lot!!

In control panel - fonts - view(menu) - options (menu item) - true type (tab) ... is 'Show only true type fonts in application' checked? If it is uncheck it. If this solves your problem it is still confusing why only the two fonts are shown, I would expect there to be more than two true type fonts in your system....

Alright, get this - you probably lost your default printer setting!  Windows (3x or 95) will not allow you to chose fonts if you don't have a printer that will support printing fonts set as your default printer.  If I set my default printer to Generic/Text, Word (2x, 6x, 95) will only allow me to use Modern, Roman, Roman 10cpi and script.  Even if you don't have a printer, set up a simple laser printer like an HP II or 3 - you sould see your fonts.

Click on the Fonts Icon in Control Panel and ADD new fonts you will be given the option to navigate to the location of the fonts presumably in C:\WINDOWS\FONTS. Give the computer time to analise and update the "window" of fonts shown and there you should have it all back.
