Fonts Folder has no "Install New Font" option on File menu

By: Arie Slob

Sometimes the Fonts folder in Windows 95 loses it's System attribute. This will make it a behave like any other Folder, so one of the things you lose is the Install New Font option from the File menu.

To fix this:

  1. Start Windows 95 in MS-DOS mode (Select Start > Shut Down > Restart the computer in MS DOS mode)
  2. At the DOS prompt type: attrib +s c:\windows\fonts
  3. Restart Windows 95

Note: This can also be fixed by using TweakUI, one of Microsoft's PowerToys.
