The Windows 7 operating system, like its Windows predecessors, allows users to install custom fonts to the system. You can then use these fonts in word-processing programs installed on your computer. Although it might be nice to have a whole new set of stylish custom fonts installed on your machine, some can cause problems. Fonts that you download from the Internet may corrupt your system or ruin your fonts folder, causing all of the fonts on your machine to display improperly. To fix your Windows 7 fonts folder should it become corrupted or damaged, you will need to reset your Windows 7 fonts to the system defaults.
