  • all know that your computer is set to a particular keyboard language and so it follows the pattern of that keyboard only. So, Windows 10 does not carry the fonts of the other keyboard languages and put them in secret so that they cannot be viewed. For instance, the computer that has the Chinese language as its keyboard settings, will not be able to assist the fonts of the German or French or any other language and thus their fonts are not shown. To use them or see them you need to make a click on Font Settings link available on the left part of the Fonts window.

  • The following Font settings window will have an option called Hide font based on language settings in the Font Settings section. You need to unselect its respective box so that you can see the fonts of other languages also. Now, to save the changes, click on the Ok button.

This is so easy to carry out. Parents can help their children by providing such new fonts in Windows 10 to their projects. After gathering a good quality of knowledge about the fonts, I am expecting all of you to put this into use. See how good you feel when you stand different from others. I have decided what I will do.

I will download a few funky and interesting fonts for my students and will see how good they are inputting them into the document. Keep one small thing in mind that when you use newly downloaded fonts in Windows 10 for your document and wish to share it with others, make sure that the other side reader has the same font installed in his system. Till then, you all create good documents and let me know how it turned out.
