    Fonts again (XP Pro SP1)

    While exploring my fonts folder I noticed two unusual things.

    1: My fonts folder always opens in "large icons" view. I prefer "details" view but can't get that view to stick. Any thoughts?

    2: Most of my fonts range in size from 9 KB to about 500 KB, except for one. Arial Unicode MS is 22,731 KB. Is there something wrong here?

    Cheers,
    Regards,
    PaulB

    2) This is OK. Arial Unicode MS is a font that contains characters for a large number of languages, among which a very large set of Chinese characters, and also Japanese, Korean, Arabic, languages from the Indian subcontinent, ...

    View the font in Character Map to get an idea.

    Hans,

    Thanks for the reassurances with respect to the Arial Unicode font.

    I've tried the suggestions in the post you identified. So far, no luck. I did notice that if I simply untick the "Remember each folder's..." checkbox, the Fonts folder will display in "details" view. As soon as I retick the box, it reverts to "Icons" view. I'll try some more experiments later. BTW, I've used TweakUI to bump up the number of folders whose settings are "remembered" to 4096. I have no (known) problems with the "views" of any folder other than the Font folder (viewed through both Windows Explorer and Control Panel).

    Cheers,
    Regards,
    PaulB
