    Windows 10 - Wrong fonts on websites

    Hi, I am a graphic designer, so I have to use helvetica, however, with windows 10 there is an issue. Some sites that use helvetica end up picking a weird version of it. One of them being paypal, uses this awful Helvetica thin compressed.

    There are other sites too. Some use a Helvetica heavy oblique. The weird thing is the website itself doesn't use that specific Helvetica font.

    Anyways, it's a minor issue, but... I coudn't remove / delete these fonts these fonts. I tried to delete them and hide them but to no avail.

    Hi, I have the exact same problem, it renders a number of websites almost unreadable. I tried to delete/deinstall Helevetica Light, but Win10 won't allow me. Some suggest you turn of DirecteWrite in Google, but it didn't solve it for me.

    I eventually figured it out. I had to change the permissions on the font, and also enabled a hidden administrator account. Also, I had to type in C:\Windows\Fonts in the cortana instead of control panel.

    I recommend downloading a font called swiss 721. It pretty much looks exactly like helvetica
