    Word Missing Fonts? (O2k,Word 9.0.6929 SP-3)

    I just had to reinstall Word on a new computer

    When I open Word to blank doc the Formatting Menu shows:
    Normal Times New Roman 11

    When I open the Font Dropdown I only see:

    Device Font 10cpi
    Device Font 12cpi
    Device Font 17cpi

    Where are the rest of my fonts ?

    I tried repair with no success

    How do I get all my fonts back for this new Word install?

    I have an identical computer with Word working OK networked to this system. Can I copy fonts from working Word computer to this newly installed Word?

    Where is the directory location for the fonts?

    Thanks, John

    Try changing your printer:

    File > Print...
    Change the printer
    click Close

    This should display all fonts applicable to your current printer.

    If that doesn't help, it might just be "one of those things that goes wrong with fonts" that usually is fixed by restarting Windows.
